It was another usual weekend day on Midway. I had a good brunch, followed by a little picture taking, and then a little more internet work.
The only thing out of the ordinary that I took a picture of (Midway ordinary, that is) was this Black-footed albatross with 2 chicks. They can't lay 2 eggs so another female must have laid the other egg in the nest. That happens fairly often, but normally one egg gets pushed out. It will be hard for the parents to feed both chicks, but if it's a good year for food and not too hot, they both might make it.
