Mango seemed to be a little unsure of the geese and layed down.

Welcome to the new season of the Laysan Albatross families in Kauai, Hawaii. Many thanks to the 'anonymous' host and The Cornell Lab of Ornithology for providing us with the opportunity to watch these magnificent birds raise a chick Left thumb up The cam is now live here. This cam is on the palm nest #1, and the female Albatross is Malumalu (K312). Her mate is Ko'olau (KP975) and they are the parents of Mango who hatched and successfully fledged on the property last year.

The parents in the nest under the banana tree to the left of Malumalu and Ko'olua's nest are Mom Ala (A379) and Dad Akamai (K039). Kaluakane and Kaluahine successfully raised their chick Kaloakulua and were featured on the cam last year. They are nesting on the other side of the property out of view from the camera.

The egg will be hatching very soon so come back for a peek Clapping

Here is Malumalu incubating her egg earlier this evening.

This looks interesting Kay. I wonder what their success rate in raising young is with nesting on the ground!
