Flashback! Keenan Yakola kissing Gracie 2018. Keenan is the Project Puffin Supervisor and he always gives the pufflings a little kiss at their last weigh-in.  :D

Yay, three cams are now live on Seal Island!!!  ;D ;D ;D  And somebody laid new bedding in Burrow 59! I hope it was Willie or Millie. Keenan posted, "New cams on the Boulder Berm and Loafing Ledge this year!" "Yes! Hoping soon. About 15% of our burrows have eggs as of yesterday."

Project Puffin reports,

"Professor Puffin reports:
BOULDER BERM BULLETIN
Willie and Millie are back in Burrow #59. Willie has leg bands; Millie has sweet blue eyes and a split toe on her right foot. -- no leg bands yet.
Muriel the Murre has "posted" watch on the Loafing Ledge CAM. There are two bird blinds in view on the Boulder Berm CAM, and P123 sotted a hummingbird inspecting that webcam. The Guillemot has been seen in the Guillemot Burrow CAM, but it's difficult to tell when the highlights are on/off. (The Puffin Burrow Exterior CAM has not gone live yet, but we're expecting a few surprises. For one, the buoy at #59 is likely closer to the burrow entrance than before. P123 posted a short video of W&M exiting their burrow near the buoy yesterday. Scroll down for more recent updates. )

We're still keeping watch for Billie, Phoebs and PAL this season. PAL is the only one of our burrow fledglings to return home.
And with high hopes, we'll be notified if CONRAD or GRACE return this year."   :)
