Have a nice day everyone!! God evening/night from me in Norway! <3 https://uploads.disquscdn.c...

puffinfan • 7 years ago

I am just after noon in California and still have half a day, 9 hours behind you in Norway Rita!

JAL 15 • 7 years ago

Another Californian -- yay! Nice to see someone else in my time zone, especially since we're being overrun with Norwegians and other Europeans.:)

AMa • 7 years ago

God kveld, og takk for bildene, Rita!

JAL 15 • 7 years ago

Oh no Ama! It's 10:30 now for you and I think I missed you again. When the baby comes, I'll be better. (But ALWAYS good to see you here whenever you make it!)

AMa • 7 years ago

What a strange pic, Pansy! :-) It's like the cam has been lifted a little and pulled slightly backwards.
Can I copy and file this pic of yours under your name, Pansy? :-)

AMa • 7 years ago

How did you manage to us a pic like this, Pansy. Seems to me like the cam has been lifted a little and pulled slightly back.
Love your picture! Can I copy to my files?

Shari • 7 years ago

Is this Billie on the nest?...........Is Billies eye better?........have been worried about that......

puffinfan • 7 years ago

Billie's eye is completely healed, no more worry :)

aprilowl • 7 years ago

When I just looked the eye is still looking a little red and watering but much better than before. In any case the sea baths will help it heal. https://uploads.disquscdn.c...

Shari • 7 years ago

I just got home.......oh good....thank you so much for taking the time to answer me....have a great day!

Will there be a new egg now at this moment? https://uploads.disquscdn.c...

Aurora • 7 years ago

Just one egg per season so only the one Willie and Billie are currently incubating.

AMa • 7 years ago

@Keenan-Project Puffin : Are there yet another possibility to determine a gender of a bird, i.e. DNA not only from a blood sample but also tiny bits of feathers/dawn/beak etc?
If it is so, is it also possible to tell by the eggshell's DNA what gender the chick is? May be the eggshell is "gender-less"?
Could well be for all I know :-)
Thank you!

Great scientific thinking to expand our understanding of the Puffins AMA.

6:55 a.m. I can see him/her on the cam, but the snapshot is stuck on a different scene.

Pansy • 7 years ago

Hi Carla! I think snapshot is doing the same on Round Island. Time to limber up the trigger finger for some screen shots! :))

Pokie! I am so confused as to where everyone lives - I mean the time zones. Will you tell me?

Puffinmuffin • 7 years ago

Eastern time zone in MD

MamaDenise • 7 years ago

Ama, just realized that those of us in parts of the States switch to what is called Daylight Savings Time during the summer. That may be why you see a time posted such as 10:25 pm EDT. EDT means Eastern Daylight Time verses winter's EST ... Eastern Standard Time. It began with Ben Franklin's idea to conserve light energy by shifting when people got up and went to bed. Here is a link that explains it better.

AMa • 7 years ago

Hei Denise :-) Just got in: A big envelope with words for me and a puff-book for Sunshine and the rest of us. Not opened but by me, safe and sound to our house!! <3 Thank you very much, friend! <3
We have the same light-conserving changing of time here as well. Once a year we give away an hour which we get back in fall. I 'm not sure if it happens on the same day here & over there :-) About one week's difference maybe?
No, it's CNN that confuses me when they sometimes insists om 2 hrs difference between GMT and here. So I asked ;-)

puffinfan • 7 years ago

Here is more info AMA on Northern and Southern hemispheres Daylight Saving Time!http://www.worldtimezone.co...
