This is a black-browed albatross video.
I was privileged to see this and other albatross species between Argentina and Antarctica.
Changes in sea surface temperature affect the survival of [black-browed] albatross during their first year at sea, resulting in a reduced population growth rate when temperatures are warmer than the current average, a new study has revealed.
We had one of these wonderful birds – a one-off vagrant and very rare in the northern hemisphere – in Abaco waters about 4 years ago. A chance sighting by a whale research vessel intern! RH
Sometimes, this species even reaches Scotland:
Great video. They are such beautiful birds. 😀
Indeed! I won’t forget them, flying behind our ship to the Antarctic.
