Irby is back from Galapagos

I (Irby) just returned from leading a trip to Galapagos for 12 Lab of Ornithology members, including our recently retired lab manager Laura Stenzler. My video highlight reel from this trip is at http://youtu.be/7iSRASwRbaQ. Most special natural history moments this time around included swimming with orcas at VERY close range, following a feeding frenzy of 20+ Galapagos Penguins, snorkeling with a young and curious Flightless Cormorant that tried to sit on my head, witnessing a long fight between two large male marine iguanas, and watching three Galapagos Hawks squabble over the placenta while a mother Galapagos Sea Lion bonded with her newborn.
