This is an exciting time of year for guests at Kauai Vacation Rental at Honu Point as Laysan Albatross chicks are “pipping” up and down the street. Introducing one such chick that was born within the last two weeks. It sits on a nest four doors down from our home. The mother and father alternate flying 1000 miles away to find food and bring it back to feed their baby. Such dedication and love.
I happened to be driving by on Wednesday when I spotted the adult preening its young. Best with sound. Enjoy!
