In April 2011, I once again arrived on the Farallon National Wildlife Refuge to start another season of seabird research working with PRBO Conservation Science. In my seventh and perhaps last season, I decided to start a photo a day challenge for myself. The challenge is to share a new and interesting photo for each day I am on the island this year.
The view facing south from the house features "the domes" (old water storage tanks) and Saddle Rock. The waves today were making it 3/4 of the way up the saddle. In the winter, waves will crash over the saddle which is over 30ft high. There are small pockets of Murres that breed high up on the rock out of the reach of crashing waves.
