Happenings on Seal Island, straight from one of our interns!
Black Guillemots are one of the species we monitor on Seal Island. We record the growth of the chicks over time and have to identify the “A chick,” or the first chick to hatch, from the “B chick,” the second to hatch. Our solution came in the form of a small pink bottle. The nail polish is great because it doesn’t harm the chicks and will stay on just long enough for us to tell them apart before they leave the nest. In honor of the guilly chicks we painted our nails “fuchsia power” as well. If only we could be as adorable as they are!
