Campers started the day by showing off their seabird identification skills with several rounds of Seabird Bingo.

After reviewing the special characteristics of both seabirds and shorebirds it was time to dream up Seabird Superheroes! These had special powers based on their unique seabird characteristics. Kids drew such heroes as Lightening Bird, Bigfoot Bird, Oily Bird, Iron Bird and the Black Widow.

Our final night of photography was dry and blustery. Perfect for flight shots. The kittiwakes hung in the air and our group of 5 photographers made many attempts at photographing them.
