These feathered giants have the longest wingspan of any bird—up to 11 feet (3.4 meters)! The wandering albatross is the biggest of some two dozen different species. Albatrosses use their formidable wingspans to ride the ocean winds and sometimes to glide for hours without rest or even a flap of their wings. They also float on the sea's surface, though the position makes them vulnerable to aquatic predators. Albatrosses drink salt water, as do some other sea birds. The Albatross is a large species of sea-bird found throughout the southern Pacific and even into the colder Antarctic regions. There are 21 different species of Albatross found across the southern seas, but sadly 19 of the different Albatross species are said to be threatened with extinction today. The Albatross is closely related to other sea-birds including Petrels, which are all unique among Birds due to the tubular nostrils on either side of the top of their bill, meaning these Birds are often referred to as Tubenoses. The Albatross was first brought into the public spotlight with Coleridge's 1798 poem, the Rime of the Ancient Mariner. The tapered wings of the Albatross means that it tends to glide through the air rather than flying which uses much more energy. The Albatross is known to practice a flying technique known as dynamic soaring, meaning that the Albatross makes use of the up-drafts of wind above the waves to give it extra lift, for longer periods of time, and without really doing anything. The Albatross has excellent eyesight as it sees it's prey from the sky, swooping down to snap a Fish from the surface or sometimes even diving into the water. They are known to also have an exceptional sense of smell which allows them to detect both prey and their breeding grounds, even in the dark. Albatross Facts - Facts About Albatrosses

Top 10 Largest Birds of Prey

Top 10 Largest Birds of Prey

Top 10 Largest Birds of Prey 1. The Harpy Eagle is arguably the most powerful of all the eagles, it can weigh nearly 9kgs and is 105cm at its longest. The talons on its feet are longer than a bears! If a harpy ever got hold of you, it could snap your arm like a twig and you need to hope it's not your head it grabs because it can crush skulls too. Although there has never been an attack on a human before. Most of their diet is from monkeys and sloths with the occasional parrot thrown in too. Their wings span a quite short 2 metres for such a large bird and its because of them adapting to flying through dense forest. The harpy is on the endangered list because of habitat destruction with some local people regarding them as legend or myth. 2. I bet you thought vultures were just scavengers intent on stealing other predators prey, well think again. The bearded vulture is one of the largest raptors in the world. It can weigh a hefty 8kg and its wings span over 3 metres. The bearded vulture are mostly scavengers but they can also hunt very well too. They tend to pick up bones of dead animals and drop them from huge heights until they break open, feasting on the nutritious marrow inside. They've also been known to do this with tortoises. They have a distinct dislike for anything rotten and will only feast on fresh kills. Their hunting technique also differs from others raptors, in that they aren't built to hunt and kill so they would swoop near cliff edges and cause animals to fall to their deaths before picking their carcass. 3. The largest owl in the world is the Blakiston fish owl, which, as i'm sure you've guessed, eats mostly fish. It was a wingspan of 2 metres and weighs 4.5kg. These owls were once thought to be quite sociable animals but the truth is that they are usually found alone or in pairs, and they only gather in larger numbers when food is very scarce 4. The crowned eagle has a shortish wingspan of 2 metres and reaches 90cm long, despite this size it has been observed taking down animals weighing 30kg. It is an extremely aggressive species and is called the leopard of the sky, mainly because of its talent of remaining unnoticed before swooping and killing immediately. Its talons can crush skulls and will cause eyes to pop out of sockets in a single attempt. There have been skulls found of ancient human sub species with talon marks in them from this bird. In Zambia, a seven year old was once attacked by a Crowned Eagle in his way to school. He received serious injury to the head, chest and arms as the raptor tried unsuccessfully to carry him away, and was only saved when a woman arrived on time to help him and managed to kill the bird. There were no nests found in the local area and the bird was found to be quite young, meaning it was simply attacking to kill. 5. The lappet faced vulture is easily the most famous face when it comes to vultures, often seen picking the bones of other animals kills on the African savannahs. They have a wingspan of 3 metres and can weigh a meaty 14kgs, making them extremely formidable. They have much larger, sharper and stronger beaks than any of the condor family. The lappet will both scavenge and hunt, killing any animal it deems a meal. It will also steal and eat other birds eggs. Their size and dominance means they are usually allowed first pickings when it comes to carcasses and it has extremely aggressive nature towards anything and anyone. Even bigger cats such as cheetahs will remain well back from them.
