Perks of Field Science

A lot of times, fieldwork has its less-than-fun side:
  • when the portable toilet people never deliver your order, for 5 weeks
  • when it's so cold, the water meter is frozen
  • when it's so hot, people are cooking lunches atop the truck
  • when it rains, and you have to keep surveying, as water sloshes back and forth in your boot.
But then, sometimes, fieldwork has its spectacular side. To whit, the following. We are working in an area that has 8 nesting pairs of crested caracara.  While those online photos are far superior to mine, I'm tickled pink to have been able to take these myself.
