    And that slope looks like our usual glacial till layers of sediment, so I wonder how stable the nesting ledges are. Incredible what kind of spaces they can utilize, especially when you think forward to the time when chicks will be there, with a hundred feet of open space below.

    It makes me think about those goats on the basically vertical face of that dam in Europe somewhere. What tiny places they can use to stay up there.

    Thanks Milly. Any more trips planned out there this year? You always get to see really cool birds. Even puffins maybe??

      The dates for the Puffin Cruises around Protection Island by the Port Townsend Marine Science Center are set.  The schedule is here.  Do we want to coordinate a PNW Bucketeers' meetup on board a boat?

        They are Friday and Saturday evenings throughout July, and we are around in July this year since we're taking our dive trip in the spring (May). Mr O and I wouldn't be able to get back home after the cruise, last ferries, but we can find a place to stay over there. Maybe combine this with some other destinations on the penin, like the mouth of the Elwha.

        Yes!

        Puffins!!
