2019—Sighting In

Northern Gannets nest in dense colonies and their nest sites are only inches apart from one another. Sighting in on their own territory amidst the mass of white birds wedged closely together on the rock face is an incredible feat that occurs over and over. How they do it is one of Nature’s remarkable accomplishments. This gannet appears to be sighting in on where to land as it flies in front of the cliff face toward its own nesting site.
