Laysan Albatross at Kilauea Light

This year (on my annual trip to Hawaii) I again had time for a short visit to the Kilauea Lighthouse on Kauai. I was able to watch the Laysan Albatross pair (both visible here) that had just recently returned to their nesting spot in this National Wildlife Refuge. The growing colony of this magnificant seabird along this coastline is one of the few "good news" stories about Hawaiian birds. Also, I found a Nene (Hawaii's state bird) on a nest under the shrubbery.
