1 bird per sq ft

On this 2.5 square mile island there are estimated to be 1.5 million laysan albatross, 1 million petrels and several hundred laysan ducks, frigates, tropical birds, white terns, naughties and a few others. It gets crowded.

Since the island is so small, the main transportation is by bicycle tha all personnel are issued upon arrival. I chose a tricycle for the big basket. Though I've found the albatross chicks also like the trike basket for the shade it provides.
