Update on Bad Mama

I stopped by Bad Mama’s nest yesterday to see what was happening.  When I got there she was sitting about 6 feet from the nest.  As soon as she saw me, she ran over to the nest, like a naughty child who was feeling guilty.  Perhaps she was actually protecting it from me, I cannot read her mind.

Her mate will come back and incubate the egg.  Last year, he stayed there until the egg broke, about 3 weeks.

Stay away from my abandoned egg!

When I start my albatross dating service, you can be sure that Bad Mama’s mate will be at the top of my list.  I will not even collect any squid from him for my hard work.  He deserves a freebie.

  1. How sad – another chick that she won’t hatch. I wish her mate would leave her and find another worthy female who would incubate the egg and not abandon the nest; too bad he can’t see this on livecam. Your dating service can’t happen too soon!

    I was on the golf course one time when her mate showed up there. I had never seen him anywhere but near Bad Mama, so I was pleasantly surprised when he approached the group of albatrosses that I was observing. They all chased him away! I have no idea why, that is an unusual reaction. He immediately took off. I hope he tries again, perhaps when there is a smaller group there!
