Baby albatross fed, video

This video, recorded in Hawaii, says about itself:

[New born albatross] Kialoa gets fed, Kauai Laysan Albatross Cam, 28 January, 2016

A clip showing the first feeding on cam, in daylight!

It takes some maneuvering, but [father] Ikaika and Kialoa eventually figure it out. The gooey substance Ikaika coughs up is dense, nutritious stomach oil that will help Kialoa grow rapidly.
