wave Sandra I haven't found any info on the success rate but I'll keep looking. I watched these birds last year and it was a lot of fun. I believe last year was the first year for the cam at this site.

This s'cap was posted on the chat thread tonight by Cornell Albatross, taken at 6:18pm nest time, clearly showing a pip in the egg WooHoo We could be watching a chick in the morning fingers crossed

A few s'caps from tonight. I'm assuming this is Mom Malumalu incubating the egg. She was sleeping, woke up and yawned a few times then preened.

Malumalu preened, got up for a stretch and gave us a glimpse of the egg which clearly shows a pip WooHoo
