About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Spanish

The albatrosses are long-lived birds, nest in remote oceanic islands and travel across the ocean, thousands of miles from their colonies to the feeding sites.

This book is a fantastic photographic introduction to 12 species of these noble winged travelers which wander and breed across the southern seas. Species depicted include the Wandering Albatross, Gibson's Albatross, Antipodean Albatross, Northern Royal Albatross, Southern Royal Albatross, Shy (White-capped) Albatross, Salvin's Albatross, Chatham Albatross, Black-browed Albatross, Grey-headed Albatross, Buller's Albatross and Light-mantled Sooty Albatross. Species accounts include distribution maps, descriptions, and notes on distribution, breeding and diet.
