    I enjoyed seeing my son at work there. He was the red haired biologist with the beard. He’s there for 3 months during the bird fall migration. Glad to see he’s well fed. Thanks for high lighting this small part of California that most people don’t see.

    Great job on this story. It was fascinating to learn about the history, the everyday activities that take place now and the adventure you take in order to reach the islands. Very entertaining.
