Two Famous Albatross Chicks on Midway Atoll in 2012

Bird banding programs across the country are making it easier than ever before to track the movement of seabirds. Our very own COASST volunteers, Mike and Barbara Patton, were able to trace a banded albatross back to a colony on Midway Atoll, the largest tropical bird rookery in the world. Sue Clark, Barb Campbell, Summer and Latresha Starling have also found albatross that originated from Midway Atoll. Well done COASSTers!
