Avian Monday

The balancing act of research, family and blogging has taken a bit of a hit on the blogging side.  Nonetheless, on the research side I’ll be heading to Kenya in mid-December for some ivory-related business. So, lets take a turn from grading exams and writing papers to look at some local wildlife.

These pictures are a series I took at Aramoana where the wind was so gusty, the white-fronted terns were reluctant to attempt to fly.  In fact, they all lined up directly to face the wind.
