Day 25: Dawn patrol

We were up early this today for some Pigeon Guillemot netting. I didn't get any good pictures of that activity (hopefully next time) but I did catch these Common Murres in the sunrise. This time of year, before egg laying, the murres are arriving en masse at the colony at dawn. About 250,000 of these birds breed on the Farallones so there can literally be thousands of early morning commuters swirling around.
