The Boys




After a month and a half doing Avian Influenza research in Oilfields, I hooked up with my partners for the post-breeding research project at the remote field camp. This is Kevin and Dan headed off for a day's work on Foggy Island. Dan, in the black jacket, was our volunteer. He has a PHD in engineering and was taking a break from a lucrative engineering career to volunteer on this project. He was really knowledgeable about birds and was really psyched to see birds that he knew from back home in Santa Barbara. Kevin is another great birder--he recognized most any bird by a few notes of song, pretty impressive. Right now he is doing a 100 mile backcountry backpacking trip in the Sierras. Straight from the remote field camp to that, again, pretty impressive. We had to carry all our gear with us and we had a 10 km. study area so I was lucky to have 'em! Oh, and they both loved to cook. Kevin's specialty was enchiladas and Dan made awesome scones. The closeup is what happened to Kevin's hair after 18 days of not bathing.
