Royal albatross born and fed, video

This 31 January 2020 video from New Zealand says about itself:

First Look! Royal Albatross Hatchling Wakes Up To A Meal From Dad #RoyalCam | NZ DOC | Cornell Lab

After being transported back to the nest the evening before, the Northern Royal Albatross chick wakes up to receive breakfast from the male, OGK. Viewers will witness heaps of feeding events like these over the next eight months as they watch the chick slowly grow to the size of an adult and develop the flight equipment that’s required to fledge come September.

RoyalCam was set up in January 2016 by the Department of Conservation. For the 2019/2020 season we have collaborated with the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. To learn more while watching, view the cam here.
