Quick update while waiting to pick up the parents from the airport! Looking forward to two weeks of showing off Bonaire and the parrots!

This week has been full of fieldwork. We're doing a study on the phenology of the trees on the island. So this month is setting up, Which means locating 30 individuals of 17 species across the island. Which makes 510 trees for anyone that's counting... But I'm very much enjoying locating them. Basically I get to walk around the island looking at trees. Occasionally with Echo's newest team member, with far more tree/bird knowledge than I have, which makes life even more interesting.

Also, and even more exciting, I actually got to spend time with a horse this week! Sam was looking for horse muck for the garden, located a lady with a horse so of course I jumped in the truck when he was going to collect it on the off chance I would get to see it. Did better than that though, spent an hour walking it round to graze and talking to its owner. Who doesn't have the time to ride it and would love the help! And if knowing that their were other people on the island who were willing to help would be looking into getting him a companion too! Actual horse that I may get to ride! It's been too long, and needless to say this had me very happy this week. And Sarah too I think!
