As entered in report for Site B, I sat between Sites B and C and observed both sites. No PIGUs at either site today. Spotted harbor seals, kingfishers and gulls but no PIGUs at these 2 sites. Receding tide, calm water, light rain.
(Divided volunteer hours between Sites B and C.)
Tide coming in, high tide at 9:43AM. Light rain, overcast skies, calm water.
No PIGUs observed in either Site B or C today. See notes for Site B, as same person, McGinty, was observing both sites today.
I observed both sites B and C by sitting in C with view of B. There were no visits to burrows or cliffs in sites B or C. However, 2 PIGUs floated in the C area for most of the hour. 1 PIGU had a sculpin in its mouth almost the entire hour. As we were leaving via the stair tower, that PIGU delivered the long-held sculpin to the new "tower burrow" in the A area. (Jack will do his observation of the A area tomorrow, July 7). A second PIGU was also flew into the C area with a large gunnel in its mouth, at 7:53. At 7:55 that PIGU delivered its gunnel to a burrow in the D area (recorded and observed by Jim Witte). THere were NO deliveries in either B or C area. We saw a total of about 7 PIGUs colony wide, mostly in the A/ North area.
7:10, No PGs visible in Sites B or C.
7:16, 1 PG flew into C site w sculpin in its mouth.
7:33, A 2nd PG flew into C site also w sculpin in mouth.
7:35 the 2nd PG delivered fish to burrow in Site D/Legacy area
7:36 the 2nd PG returned to Site C without fish in mouth and floated next to the 1st PG who still had its sculpin in its mouth.
7:50 The 2nd PG has flown away. The 1st PG continues to float in Site C w sculpin in its mouth.
8:08 the 1st PG has flown away. I missed its departure.
8:10 There are no PGs in Sites C or B.
8:35 After survey of Sites B and C was complete, I walked to active burrow in Site D and could see some white guano outside lowest burrow. Then I walked to Site A and was able to see large chick in the "tower burrow". The chick is best visible from the 3rd landing down of the stair tower.
