This lovely bird is a Laysan Albatross
One of the most marvelous sights in the Pacific ocean is the graceful glide of a Laysan Albatross at play among the winds and waves. These expert soarers can travel hundreds of miles per day with barely a wingbeat. They nest on islands of the tropical Pacific, but they may head out to Japan, the Aleutian Islands, or California to feed. Laysan Albatrosses are numerous, though they face threats from longline fishing, plastic trash in the ocean, and predation by dogs, rats, and cats.
I have used the Cornell Lab of Ornithology
for all the information on this blog.
It is a wonderful web site full not only
with written information, but also bird songs
and videos! Enjoy and treasure birds!
