The first thing you'll notice about Midway when you wake up in the morning is the sound. There are albatross everywhere. While many are breeders and are busy flying in and out feeding their chick every few days, the vast majority of albatross you see hanging out on the island during the day are non-breeders. They're there to practice their courtship dancing and hopefully find a mate to meet up with the following year. Behind this begging chick, you'll see a group of albatross busy with dancing.
