waffle update...our sweet adopted penguin waffle has said goodbye to her 2 chicks. they have officially begun life on their own! mike reports, "Chick weight is so important that we weigh the chicks before they leave the colony. The chicks will not sit still on scales, so they are dangled by the legs instead. It looks unkind, but it does not hurt and it is quickly over. Anything over 3 kilograms is a good weight, and the average weight for the chicks at our Chilean and Argentine colonies this year was 3.2 kilograms, so they should do well." please be sure to visit mike at seabirds.org ~~~ (photo: chick being weighed courtesy of mike)i have launched a new photoblog with sabine (another member of she who blogs)~~ snap2days. april 1 was the official first post (no joke!) & we are having the best time. please stop by for a visit & be sure to leave some feedback. lissarecently proposed the project & paired us...her help to us has been extremely valuable. thank you so much, lissa!
