Welcome to Royal cam - streaming live from our northern royal albatross colony at Taiaroa Head near Dunedin.


Map of NZ with Dunedin highlighted.

The web cam chick hatched on 28 January 2017. It belongs to a young albatross pair. The male has blue-black (BK) colour bands and the female red-blue-black (RBK).

The parents are usually out at sea, taking turns to return and feed the chick. The chick will fly away around September when it's about 8 months old.
