Wandering Albatross

Wandering Albatross

Marty’s photo of the day #1618: At eleven-and-a-half feet, wandering albatrosses have the widest wingspan of any bird on earth. These birds spend the majority of their lives at sea. When young, they may go five or more years without touching land. When mature, they come ashore on a two-year breeding cycle and lay one egg each time. (Photographed off the coast of Antarctica)
