July 17, 2017 - Guanay Cormorant or Guanay Shag (Leucocarbo bougainvillii)

These cormorants are found along the west coast of South America from Peru to Chile, as well as in parts of the east coast of Argentina. They eat mainly anchoveta, or Peruvian Anchovies, and other schooling fish, catching their prey during rapid pursuit diving. Once known as the “billion dollar bird,” they were the largest producers of guano in Peru. Breeding in large colonies of over 1,000 pairs, they compete for nest space with Peruvian Brown Pelicans and Peruvian Boobies. Their nests are built on the ground from guano, feathers, and other debris. Both parents incubate the eggs and feed the chicks. They are listed as Near Threatened by the IUCN due to guano mining and overfishing of their food sources.

Menu #7: Tteokbokki

This is the quintessential Korean street snack made from chewy rice cake cooked in a broth of fermented chilli paste, spring onion, sugar and some recipes include anchovies. The dish is often be accompanied with fish cakes and a hard boiled egg. There are now many variations, including fried rice sticks on skewers.

All About Minkes

Minke Whales are one of the smallest baleen whales (second to the Pygmy Right Whale). They are classified into two separate species by the hemisphere they reside in- Northern Minke Whale or Common Minke Whale (Balaenoptera acutorostrata) and Southern Minke Whale or Antarctic Minke Whale (Balaenoptera bonaerensis). The type we see in California is the Common or Northern Minke Whale.

Adult males reach an average length of 23′ and females 26′ (for baleen whales, females are often larger than males). Reported maximum lengths for Minkes are 32-35′! Both sexes typically weigh 4–5 tons at adult size.

Coloration of Minke whales is a mix of grays, whites and blacks; with darker shades on their back and lighter shades on their bellies. The most distinguishing mark for the species is the white band that spans horizontally across their black flippers.

The diet of a Minke whale includes crustaceans (krill), plankton (copepods), and small schooling fish (anchovies, herring, mackerel, etc.).  Minke whales typically live for 30–50 years; in some cases they may live for up to 60 years!

Larger whales usually surface gradually; surfacing with their head and blowholes first, then their back and then their dorsal fin and lastly, their flukes.  Since they are small, the blow of a Minke is usually not visible and their surfacing is very brief: their blowholes and dorsal fin break the surface close to the same time. 

In Southern California, Minkes are seen just about year-round. A few of them are shy; they surface a few times and quietly slip away. On the other hand, some of them are incredibly curious and active. Some of them have approached our vessels to take a look at the passengers on board

and some of them even breach!

Mermaid AU 16

“Did Fury adopt you?” One of the much younger mermaids asked Tony. She stared up at him with wide and curious eyes.

This was not the first time Tony been asked that question since he’d arrived at the pod’s nest. Originally the merkids had kept their distance at his arrival, which had been just fine with Tony. He’d never dealt with younger kids before, and he wasn’t so sure he knew how to interact with them. Plus, as loathe as he was to admit weaknesses, he was a nervous wreck. Fury had introduced him to a few other elders and then had basically sent him off to… Play? Eat? What did merfolk do all day?

For the kids the answer was play. They swam around screaming and hollering at each other as they chased each other about.

When they weren’t staring at Tony that was.

Of course, now that they had gotten used to seeing Tony, they were a lot braver and were asking him questions.

“Well?” The small mermaid asked.

“No one is adopting me.”

The girl cocked her head. “So are you someone’s mate?”

Tony blushed.

Suddenly Steve was there and laughing as he pulled the girl away from Tony. “Come on, you don’t want to talk to boring old Tony.”

“But why is he here?” she whined even as she allowed herself to pulled away from the source of her intrigue.

Soon three other merkids were surrounding them and clinging to Steve as they demanded Steve’s attention. Steve was all smiles as he invented a game for them right on the spot.

Tony sighed in relief.

He looked around and spotted Natasha holding some sort of crab and speaking to a cluster of kids who listened to her with rapt attention. Not far off, Sam and a few kids were messing around in a seaweed patch and enjoying themselves.

Tony noted that Sam would occasionally glance in his direction then at Steve.Tony couldn’t quite figure out why Sam was doing that, but he found he didn’t care enough to inquire about it. He was too busy sulking on his large rock.

Plus, he stomach had been growling for what felt like hours.

Tony startled when he felt something brush up behind him.

Bae! <3 What about 12, 13, 16, 26 and 49 for Viola? :3


`w´ alright~

12. What is their favourite food?

Pizza . OK , hear me out it wasn’t originally suppose to be a pun  , she’s italian and all but I just thought that it would have to be something that she loves to cook with her Father .(Her father has a pizza restaurant , totally not sponsering the restaurant *COF*) I guess it reminds her of home , so that’s why she likes it so much .

13. What is their least favourite food?

Viola absolutely hates anchovy , she thinks that fish is cursed . Ok sToRy TiMe ! She was at this pizza place one time having lunch with her parents ,and there were being served this new combination of pineapple and anchovy , of course as a pizza lover how could she refuse to try a new topping….well she thought it tasted weird but then just throwed up afterwards , she really hates that fish…..or was it the pineapple’s fault?? We may never know….

16. Do they collect anything? What do they do with it? Where do they keep it?

Viola has this small yet cool collections of postcards from every country she has visited , since her parents travel a lot , because of her mother’s job she has a great number of them ! She is very proud of her collection actually , and keeps them all lined up in her desk , her dog sometimes runs against her desk unintentionally obviously and makes them all fall over , but she is kinda used to it now . She likes to look at each postcard and remember the places and friends she made along the way .

26. How do they act when they’re happy? Do they sing? Dance? Hum? Or do they hide their emotions?

When Viola’s happy she starts dancing and singing like 80′s and 90′s videoclips , or memes…She really can’t hide when she’s happy so , when you see her from far she looks like this drunk girl with a huge smile on her face .

49. What is their most valued object? Are they sentimental? Is there something they have to take everywhere with them?

Viola loves and cannot live without her cat shaped headphones , it was a gift from her older sister on her birthday . Her sister rarely comes home , but they always keep touch on social media , she’s always traveling so sometimes it’s not easy for them to talk . Viola cares deeply about her sister , she helped her in some rough times and always makes her laugh , no matter how bad the situation is her sister always seems to cheer her up . So her headphones have a very strong emotional value to her !
