Banded Bird #72291 – Male

This banded male has been in our study before. The pair has been named Mumble and Bobala by the students at Saint Columban School in Garden Grove, CA. Their teacher is Genny Kahlweiss.  Mumble is 10 years old and was first seen at Cape Royds in 2016. He was successful in raising chicks last year. He has a very secure nest surrounded by rocks which will help keep the Skuas away.

#72291 Nesting Colony

This family is in the same colony as Nest #2, but in a much better location.  It is a larger colony, over 150 birds, and they are near the center and surrounded by rocks.  Our most protected nest, it will be hard for the Skuas to get the egg or chick. They have been in this site before.
