They're Baaaack!

Wow. It's been nearly a year since I've posted anything on this blog; how time flies, right? Thanks to a computer meltdown of epic proportions last spring and really bad cam shots, I managed to miss out on the last leg of the Gentoos occupation of Gars O'Higgins Station, which included the chicks first wanderings. I'm hoping for a better year this time, as well better cam shots to highlight a nest or two. Without a cam on a nest, we can't have front row seats for the birth and subsequent sighting of the chicks' first forays.

So, that being said, here's evidence that a few early arrivers are already checking out the rookery, despite the still intense sea ice and subsequent spring weather. I'll have more as the cams catch sight of those gorgeous Gentoos.

Stay tuned!

It's likely that OpenStack will be subject to the same effect, becoming a viable option among a number of cloud infrastructures. Read more
