Hawaiian moorhen visits young albatross


This video says about itself:

28 April 2017

Watch this Hawaiian Moorhen nearly cross paths with a sleepy Kalama on the Laysan Albatross cam.

Also known as ‘alae ‘ula, these endangered water birds are endemic to Hawaii. They are a subspecies of the Common Gallinule, which inhabits marshes and ponds all the way from Canada to Chile!

The Kauai Laysan Albatross cam is a collaboration between the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the Kauai Albatross Network.
