        Albatross Females Raising Chicks Together

        Learn about an albatross colony in which many of the chicks are raised by two females in this video from NATURE: Animal Homes. After their nesting grounds were destroyed, albatrosses established a new colony at Kaena Point on the Hawaiian Island of Oahu. Scientists discovered that females outnumbered males in the colony. Genetic testing revealed that 30% of the breeding pairs in the colony were same-sex female couples.
