Comments:
A windy day in the Dry Tortugas. The boat was rocking and rolling on the way in; the captain had everyone take their seats, so I guess that means stronger winds than usual. North side of Garden Key had the most wind. North coal docks were nearly empty when we arrived, but the Brown Noddys slowly came in throughout the day.

Continuing. It stayed pretty much in the same place all day by the tallest trees on Long Key. Photos taken, but because it was so far away all you can really see is a little pink dot. Yay pink bird!

Seen on Hospital Key from the Yankee Freedom boat as we headed towards Garden Key. The count came from photos that I looked at after getting home. There were three first year birds that had dark backs and heads, but were starting to develop white in the wings.
