When I was editing my film for yesterday’s post, I heard the distinctive sounds of an albatross chick below my living room window. Kirwan could hear his food-begging vocalizations on the tape, and I think he wanted to know why there was a chick in my house, possibly stealing one of his meals. Was Mom in there, too? He had moved from his stump, where he was sitting in this photo, to a spot under my window.
When I opened the curtain to see, he was looking up at me. Of course I did not have my camera there, so I ran to get it. when I came back, he was checking under my house for that albatross.
He never found him!
I am really going to miss this little guy….
