wave Gabi. Isn't this nest wonderful, and such a good cam view.

Mom Kaluahine was on the nest while I was watching a short while ago. It is raining
there and the little one didn't want to come out from its nice warm cozy spot under Mom.

Hi Sassyk. The nest is so enchanting and the live-stream cam is great.

I have never seen an Albatross chick before. Im amazed what big beak they already have and the plumage of the chick looks like the skin of a hedgehog

8:00 am HST ( Hawaii Standard Time )

Gabi great close up s'caps Left thumb up

While I was recording videos yesterday morning Kaloakulua had a big poop just after he stretched his wings. I missed getting the s'cap while recording but snipped it later from the video. For some reason the video stream keeps going off and on Roll eyes

Kaloakulua's poop at 10:29am Feb. 7th.

Here are the links to 2 videos I recorded yesterday morning here and here
