A brief note from Alejandro Simeone <asimeone@valdivia.uca.uach.cl> regarding early breeding attempts at the Humboldt Penguin colony at Algarrobo, Chile. As with last winter, rains have been very intensive, especially during early-mid September and early October. Consequence: the breeding for this season is severely delayed. Last Saturday 27th there were about 10 active nests, what we consider with Mariano to be very poor in relation to same date last year.-- Ed Diebold ediebold@riverbanks.org
