Away From It All

During dinner time I told Hubby about something I read in National Geographic recently.

It’s about birds particularly the species of dark-mantled Sooty Albatross.

During breeding season, these birds build their nests on nearly inaccessible ledges in some of the most rugged and least visited islands of the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans.

Because of their choice of secluded life, not much has been known about the life of the albatross.

It is known however that the female lays but a single egg, which both parents take turns incubating.

If a couple successfully raises a chick one year, they seldom breed again the following year.

I think both of us are like this dark-mantled sooty albatross.
