Laysan albatross

Not the greatest photo, I know, but when I saw this bird flying off the North Kohala coast I knew it was something I hadn’t seen before.

It’s a Laysan albatross, more often seen on Kaua’i and O’ahu, but also on other Hawaiian islands. This wide-ranging traveler can cover a couple of thousand miles or more as it searches the Pacific for food.

          By the way, on a totally different subject, is Finland really part of Russia? I was thinking of running for president and I thought that might be something I could get asked about!

              I hope so, but as H.L. Mencken said, “No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public.” (That’s not his actual quote, but the way it’s usually paraphrased.)
