June 24, 1926
: Albatross Camp (Base Camp) ; Mamberamo River
Today was a day of rest about camp and I stayed close to home, spending most of the day filing pictures. Stanley and le Roux went out hunting with a couple of Dyaks and returned with a couple of colorful birds of doubtful epicurean value. Stanley and his Dyak reported finding a cassowary nest. It was an unusually bright sunshiny day from early morning to sunset, and in the evening there came a fierce thunder storm and oceans of rain.
