Watch other segments at Cornell Lab Bird Cams.
As a result of collaboration with the good folks at Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Kaua`i Albatross Network, Hideaway Vacation Homes and several generous donors, the life of an albatross family can now be witnessed in real time all over the globe.
In the first five weeks, the new nest has already had 473K hits from 164 countries!
Kaloakulua (kah-loh-ah-koo-loo-ah) hatched 1/27/14 on the north shore of Kaua`i. The chick was named by a Hawaiian kumu (teacher) and honors the phase of the moon when Kaloakulua took breath when pipping from the shell.
This is the first time the mama Kaluahine and the papa Kaluakane are known to have successfully started a family.
Please join us in watching Kaloakulua grow.
