Title

Laysan albatross in "civilization"

Description

This Laysan albatross had left Princeville, Kaua'i five years previously and had just returned to land for the first time since fledging. This bird inhabits two worlds, a terrestrial one which has been drastically altered by the people he must share it with, and a watery world that humans are also in the process of changing forever.
