All of the 5 albatrosses that have returned to Princeville so far are near my house. The morning of November 12th, I saw the last two.
Gator, age 11, is one of Joseph’s sons. He nests in the same yard where he hatched. He has raised 2 chicks with his mate.
KP497 was banded as an adult in January of 2004. He has raised 6 chicks with his mate since then. They always nest in the same yard.
Yay! Two more have returned!
