The wind howled last night and brought a morning with extremely limited underwater visibility. It would be difficult to collect underwater video with behavioral information when you could not actually see the dolphins at more than 3 ft away. So, we reviewed some data and some results and took a short walk around the island.
On our walk, we saw the rebounding mangroves planted and also an unidentified species (we focus on the mammals and are less skilled identifying bird species) of heron nesting in one secluded area of mangroves. We also spent several minutes watching a night hawk roosting in a tall swaying tree.
The wind lessened as the afternoon progressed and we are optimistic for more data collection tomorrow.
