Ok, I’m finally declaring myself a “Birdwatcher”. That’s something I never thought I’d say but I’m fascinated by these birds…the way they act, the differences between the species and sometimes they just crack me up. The “Gooney” bird (Laysan Albatross) especially. These guys are so goofy! Between their clumsy landings and the silly mating dances, they are seriously amusing. What I love most about them is their curiousity. Sure some of them will run away from humans but most are curious, especially the teenagers (1-4 year olds).
I was laying out reading on the sand dunes at the beach one afternoon and they kept coming over to check me out. This guy waddled right up to me….
