Black-browed Albatross

Overview
Black-browed Albatross: White head, neck, underparts, and black back, tail. Yellow bill with red tip, pale pink-gray legs and feet. Easily identified by black tail, stiff wing beats and long narrow pointed wings. Soars effortlessly for long periods of time, may circle and glide for long distances.

Range and Habitat
Black-browed Albatross: Common on the open sea in the southern oceans, rarely crosses the equator. Prefers to nest on slopes or cliffs overlooking ocean.

INTERESTING FACTS
They are long-lived birds surviving 30 years or more and have a strong attachment to their colony of birth. They will tolerate other bird species near their nests but other albatrosses are not allowed closer than about one and a half meters. When landing, the Black-browed Albatross lowers its webbed feet and uses them as brakes to slow its flight. A group of albatrosses are known collectively as a "flight", "rookery", and "weight" of albatrosses.
