Nature vs blacktop

On the way back from a beach debris rescue mission [2,000 lbs ball of rope] I was struck by the asymmetric distribution of Albatross on each side of the bike path out by the airfield.  One of the old time volunteers said it was because the adults return and lay eggs where they were born.
Up until a few years ago, everything on the right side of the picture was blacktop and historically no birds have been raised there.
As with much of the development on the island, nature is quickly taking back the landscape one concrete crack and split at a time.
