Churchill Teaser 2010

As some of you know, I have been back in Churchill, MB for the past couple of months, working once again with Hudsonian Godwits. Unlike last year, the godwits are having a good year, with lots of chicks around to follow. As I am quite behind on posts, I will give you just a teaser of what I've been seeing. In addition to future posts on the 2010 Churchill field season, also look for the conclusion of posts from my adventures with godwits in Chile.

Parasitic Jaeger chicks... cute, no?

  1. You know, I'm pretty sure those jaeger chicks are just sizing you up as a potential meal
