Royal albatross father feeds his chick, video

This 21 April 2020 video from New Zealand says about itself:

OGK Returns! Long Feeding Visit By Royal Albatross Parent | #RoyalCam | NZ DOC | Cornell Lab

After more than 4 weeks, the father of the Northern Royal Albatross chick returned to feed. According to rangers from the New Zealand Dept. of Conservation, he appears to be unfortunately injured; hopefully this is superficial and he can recover from this. We have no way of knowing what has happened while he was out over the ocean, but the fact that he returned and fed the chick and flew away from the colony are at least positive developments.
