There is a beach heliotrope tree on the golf course that albatrosses have chosen as a nest site through the years. This year, a couple who first nested there two years ago built their nest under that tree and have a healthy chick residing in it. During the storms that hit Hawaii between Saturday and Tuesday, the tree was uprooted and fell over. The nest was in the perfect spot and the chick survived with every feather in place.
The nest is in between two roots. The little guy could have been seriously hurt if it had fallen another way.
