More about Fairway Chick

For two days in a row I saw the Fairway Chick sitting with Mom in the center of the golf course away from the fairways.  The third day, he convinced her to walk across the golf cart path to join him on the side of the fairway.  His mother left shortly after I took this photo, and the chick proceeded to make a short practice flight into the middle of the fairway, which is downhill.  He then walked back up the hill and tried again.  The winds off of the ocean are very inviting to an albatross and make fledging very natural for the chicks close to the bluffs.

Some of the chicks still have lots of downy feathers.  Here is a sequence of photos of the Fairway Chick to show you how he is losing his.  It may be that some were lost when his mother groomed him.
