A few of the birds were climbing on the other ones to get out of the water.

Back to work
I'm back on Midway after a nice time off in the Washington D.C. area. It's been raining most of the time since I've been back which has caused some flooding in the old parade field and some of the seeps. Yesterday I spent the whole afternoon pulling out birds that were flooded. A lot of them could get to high ground by themselves, but a lot of them couldn't, especially the little Bonin petrel chicks that got flooded out of their burrows. I didn't take too many photos this week since I've been in the office catching up on emails and paperwork, just some of the wet birds.
