The juvenile albatrosses show as white blobs. The eggs hatched in February; the photograph was taken in May; and the fledglings would be taken in August or September when they weighed as much as 8 kg. People who visited the island seasonally lived in caves to the east of the prominent rock knob, which is also adjacent to a permanent water supply. The landing place was on the northern rock ledges.
