Gray Gloom

29 Sep 2016

The Gray Gloom remains upon the island, pushed along by northwest winds that fend off most migrant landbirds. The Great White Shark season is well underway, however,  and the sharks don't care so much about fog. Shark research is carried out on a small boat called Stacy which is launched from the sailing vessel Bayliss:

The Black-throated Sparrow persists on Lighthouse Hill, taking a bit of edge off of the birding doldrums.

The Island's substrates aren't too different from the normal haunts of this desert-dweller

Today's eBird checklist is here.
