Video: Laysan Albatross Mating Dance
The Laysan Albatross is a gull-like seabird found commonly throughout the Hawaiian Islands. In this video, these commonplace looking birds perform a unique mating ritual where they dance in unison. The dance usually begins with bill clapping and can have up to 25 movements. Females mate for life and the birds raise babies together. Baby birds go to sea after the first year of their life and don't return for up to four years when they come back to perform their own dance.
