Laysan Albatross Courtship Dancing

18 November 2015

Adult albatrosses may spend months apart from their partners while foraging between breeding attempts; when they arrive on the breeding grounds, pairs reconnect through a series of highly choreographed dances that reinforce their bond and suitability as a mate. Check out this clip taken with a #GoPro during the 2015 season’s installation to get a sense of the impressive coordination and skill of these talented dancers.

Camera is normally live from late January through mid-July—tune in here.
