      Yes, Al the Laysan looks to have a broken right foot. But Al is coping.
      Yesterday Al was seen in the water off the Point Arena pier. A surfer
      swam out with some bait for Al and the bird negotiated itself over to
      the surfer for its treat. Then Al tucked his head down and took a nap.
      Al is able to fly and to fish. Bird experts have decided to monitor Al
      for the time being. If Al appears to deteriorate, an intervention may
      be tried. We treasure this Laysan very much here on the coast. This is
      the fourteenth winter that Al has spent here.
