5-6 October

Island life continues--birds, wind, waves, and sharks. We received some visitors this week. Three electricians and the NWR operations specialist, Jonathan Shore, arrived to fix up the electrical system--the lighthouse is currently plugged into a wall outlet behind the Coast Guard stove. Untenable, this is. Everything will be brand new in no time!

Jonathan leaving the fancy way.

Art Starling. Starlings don't look like this.

This Rock Pigeon is a survivor. Weeks alone (after the three Eurasian Collared-Doves left/were consumed) with two constantly prowling Peregrine Falcons
