What's Happening: Feeding notes

In the video we posted earlier, you may have noticed me taking some notes. That's how we keep track of how much each bird eats at each feeding.

The plastic tablet is a handy way to do that. Next to each penguin's name, we use a pencil to mark how many fish they eat. We transcribe this information to official paper copies, once we are dry, along with any observational notes that should be part of each penguin's personal records. The best feature of this tablet is it doesn’t matter if it gets wet!
