This breeding pair will be new to our study, and successfully raised chicks last year. The banded bird is a 6 years old female and wears #4870. When we arrived at the colony Nov 30, there were already 2 eggs, we have not seen the mate yet. Their nest is in the Center Field breeding group and this nest is near a very large rock which should help keep the Skuas away. The pair has been named by Reinhard Marx's classroom in Germany.The female is Aische, the male Jackson.
