    Equipment Note

Below a colony of Royal Albatrosses on cliffs above the sea where these birds had their nests. Vocalizations quite similar to Pied Shag. Sounds of several young and many adults can be heard. Light and monotonous. Wheezy calls and throat flutterings. About 500 adults in this country.
