Royal Albatross - Easter Day 4/9
All ruffled up, with breakfast to serve.
Dad GLY arrived to feed chick. It was an extended visit, with Dad disappearing up top before reappearing to sit and listen to chick's chatter.
GLY gave chick a small top up before heading off into the winds.

Wings and wingercizes, and how about a skycall too.
#RoyalCam chick shows us how it's done.

Weigh day for the chicks. South Plateau chick at 82 days old weighs 7 kg.
This is a very good weight for this age and only 100g shy of the heaviest chick's weight, today.

Seen on the RoyalCam yesterday
A White-faced Heron flew past UQ & SP chicks and
then another chick appeared up the top of the bank, listen to SP chick  :-*

📝Due to it being ANZAC Day tomorrow the colony's 33 chicks will be weighed on Thursday.

Dad GLY landed right in front of the webcam this morning, with breakfast for SP chick.
Enjoy their greetings, and thanks Dad.  ;D

Lunchtime treat.

Dad GLY arrives with lunch for SP chick.
Here's some good mouthfuls, and a few strands of spaghetti too.
There is still time to scroll back and watch Dad's visit.
Thanks for watching and enjoy your weekend.

Sweet calls to Dad  :-*

4/29 This is my front lawn!  ;D
SP chick was not too happy about a pair of adolescents stopping by, last evening.
Chick soon moved them off with his snapping bill.

4/28 Chick SP had a lot to say when he returned to his nest!  ;D :-*

Royal Albatross update - 5/1 13:01
Weigh day (instead of Tuesday)

SP chick is now the heaviest chick in the colony.  ;D
At 101 days old chick weighed 10 kgs this morning, thanks to his 2 breakfasts.
Also, Mum L was in at 16:23 this afternoon.

https://twitter.com/i/status/1652997543461281794

Royal Albatross - 5/1
Early morning wingercizes, and a parent arrives!  :-*
It is likely to be chick's Mum, L. Enjoy your breakfast SP chick. 
Then a couple of hours later, Dad arrives with breakfast number 2, video below.

https://twitter.com/i/status/1652944311972147238

Royal Albatross - 5/3
How is this for a perfect landing in windy conditions?  ;D
GLY arrived in grand fashion, to feed his #RoyalCam chick, yesterday.
Includes a brief close up GLY and SP chick, later on in Dad's visit.

Royal Albatross - 5/4 9:03
Don't forget to paddle scratch.
Damp/wet chicks can attract dirt & nest material, just like SP chick did this morning.

Also check out the highlight videos. Here is the latest one of GLY arriving in that 30-knot northerly.

Of those I like Atarangi.  How about Moana (Maori for sea, ocean or large lake)?  Although it is also a movie title.  Good luck!

Linda M, I like your suggestion of Moana, great name  ;D

Royal Albatross update 5/22
A close up view of SP chick's eye and bill.
Watch chick's third eyelid. The nictitating membrane helps protect and keep chick's eyes moistened.
Tomorrow is weigh-in day!  ;D

Royal Albatross SP chick is 123 days old and weighs 8.4 kgs.
A weather change is forecasted and hopefully it will bring in a parent for chick.

Check the chick's weight: https://tinyurl.com/4dee65hp

The heaviest chick today weighed 9.5 kg
