This is starting out as an unusual season

I knew that I was seeing more albatrosses than I usually do at this time of year, so I checked my Excel files.  This table shows, for each of the last 10 seasons,  the number of albatrosses that had appeared in Princeville by November 13th.

Season                               Number of albatrosses

2005-2006                                     3
2006-2007                                     0
2007-2008                                     1
2008-2009                                    4
2009-2010                                     4
2010-2011                                      3
2011-2012                                      3
2012-2013                                      3
2013-2015                                      5
2014-2015                                     17

Checking every day is important, because the birds are coming and going; they may not be here every day.

What does it all mean?  Does it mean anything?

    Amazing! I hope they can all find spots to nest.

    I think it simply means they’re incredibly intelligent, saw that vicious cold storm front coming when they were up north and decided to get the heck out of Dodge early!!! 😉
