Sadly the clutch of 2 eggs that was here a couple of days before has vanished. Very disturbed to hear that a postdoc scientist from the University of Kansas collected a female and a juvenile here 2 months ago, againt the wishes of the local islanders. Yet another contoversial American collecting expedition in the Solomons
