Title

Laysan albatross talking to hatchling chick

Description

This photo was taken in a garden in Princeville, Kaua'i. Eight years previously the parent had hatched from a nest about 20 feet from this one. If the chick survives life at sea, he will return to the area to find a mate and eventually nest here.
