Antarctica: birds

petrel

We just flew into Logan after about 24 hours of traveling, beginning in Ashuaia, Argentina, to Santiago Chile, to Atlanta to Boston. After a day of flying and while we wait in the airport to catch the bus to the Cape, I thought I’d write a post and show you the splendid birds we saw in Antarctica. Some were seen from the boat and others we saw on land. Can you guess what they are? Answers at the end of this post.

  2. Please tell us about the birds, Salley! I know for sure they are not seagulls. I am particularly interested in the first one and the last one. Thank you!

  3. Welcome home, Salley. I can’t wait to see what you create after your fabulous journey. Merry Christmas to you and your family and a healthy and happy New Year also.
