Update to “Biography of an albatross”

KP679 abandoned her egg today.  I left the egg in the nest in case the she decides to come back.  Please, if you see an abandoned egg, stay at least 15 feet away as you would if you saw the parent sitting there.  The parent may be scared away if people are too close to the nest.  Even if the egg is no longer viable, it may be important for her or him to sit on it again.  Sometimes the other birds will use an abandoned egg in their displays with each other, also.  In my December 15th post, “Albatrosses and abandoned egg,” I show a film that illustrates their fascination with these eggs.
