Albatross Rescue

Last night at closing time we had some excitement . I was getting ready to run our dog when I glanced across the highway and saw this big bird bobbing its head and weaving up the right of way.
Cindy called the Wildlife people out at Kilauea Point and they said a ranger would come by to pick up the bird and not to let it get into traffic.
I ran across the road and picked up the bird known as K547.
Later the ranger said she had already rescued him that morning. He was fledging and that means flying north out to sea for a year.
I hope three times is a charm and that K547 makes it back to Kauai
