A Laysan Albatross feeds its chick, photograph by Pete Leary

The Albatross and the Cigarette Lighter

You are going on a bird-watching holiday.  You travel to a seabird island, say in the North Pacific.  On arrival you are delighted to see thousands of albatrosses spread right across the island.  Your guide tells you the albatrosses are nearly at the end of their breeding season and that nearly all the birds before your admiring gaze are chicks that have lost their downy feathers and will soon fly away to sea, not to return for four years or more.
