DO NOT DISTURB!
Laysan Albatross, ‘Moli’
The Laysan Albatross is a seabird that nests on Kauai from November through July.
These birds mate for life and both parents take care of the chick. A single egg is laid in
early December and is incubated for approximately 2 months. Nesting is an energetically
demanding time and the birds should not be disturbed.
In early February the chick hatches. After 2 weeks the chick is left alone, often for a few
days, while parents are feeding at sea. The parents have NOT abandoned the chick – they
will return regularly to feed it. In late June or early July, the chick takes its first flight
to the sea and will not return for 3 to 4 years.
