animal census

Sunny all day. Light E-NE winds. Cold! It dropped below freezing over night.

I found some treasure on the boat ramp this morning in the form of a drift card. Although there are several groups that set out these small, buoyant yellow cards to study ocean circulation patterns, this card is meant to map the potential distribution patterns and impacts of an oil spill from a tanker. For more information, check out the website that’s written on the image of the card.
