We took Uakeia's family on an overnight trip to Numatong Island in the northern end of the lagoon. Frigate Birds, Terns, and Noddies were nesting there in large numbers. The people of Nonouti always gather eggs here during the nesting season. Here is Atitia with Tern eggs, smaller than chicken eggs but tasting about the same.
