Here I am working on the migration study on Foggy Island on the Sag River Delta by the Bering Sea. We actually had a centrifuge that we ran with a generator to extract plasma from blood samples from shorebirds we caught. That is what I am doing here, which is a pretty delicate and time-consuming process. We had a HUGE propane freezer to store these samples. We joked that would should have asked for ice cream in our resupplies, our freezer was so big. It used a lot of propane and before we got the correct hose, made lots of fumes in our "lab tent," hence working outside like this.
