Subject: [Mendobirds] No sign of our favorite Laysan Albatross
A visiting birder was in Point Arena a week or so ago and thought he might
have spotted Al by the bell buoy. However I have no confirmed sighting of
Ken, from Alabama, asked me to post this: Hi, Could you post, or perhaps ask
someone else to post, the arrival dates for the Laysan Albatross in prior
years? I traveled 3 different years to see this bird, and I'm starting to
worry. :( Thanks, -ken archambault, birmingham, alabama
Robert, could you post the comings and goings of Al? Last year Al arrived on
Dec. 6th. So we still have hope. We have had a lot of stormy weather. The
Albatross disappears during storms so it's possible it returned but isn't in
the waters off the Point Arena Pier.
I will let you know as soon as I hear that our favorite Laysan has returned.
Fingers crossed, Jeanne Jackson, Anchor Bay
