Albatross can best be viewed from Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge on the north shore of Kauai
Best viewing Jan-April
In the days before they jump off the bluff for the first time, Laysan albatross chicks flap their wings, hop up and down, try to catch a little air. But the most telling predictor? It's in their eyes: this determined, focused, hell-or-high water look. You could call it courage, your could call it commitment, you could even call it crazy.
