Day 2 - Surveying islands and catching lizards

We had a busy first day of work yesterday. We placed all 50 clay models yesterday in 5 different types of habitat. I can't wait to see if we get any bites. Yesterday we also put out 20 nest boxes full of good moist soil to try to find out where the females are laying their eggs on our islands.
Today we are on our way to meet up with Alexis (from Harvard University) to survey islands at her field site near Marineland, 30 miles north of ours. We will also be hoping to catch and measure a lot of lizards. Check back soon for more.
