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

Albatross Bird | Informative Video  | Birds Fact - Albatross

Albatross are the largest seabirds in the world. They belong to the tube -- nose family. Albatrosses eat fish and squid and drink sea water. They spend most of their lives at sea. They only come to land to make their nests. Most albatrosses range in the southern hemisphere from Antarctica to Australia, South Africa and South America. The exceptions to this are the four North Pacific albatrosses, of which three occur exclusively in the North Pacific, from Hawaii to Japan, California and Alaska; and one, the Waved Albatross, breeds in the Galapagos Islands and feeds off the coast of South America. Around Twenty two species live on the islands around New Zealand which is also known as the Albatross capital of the world. These long-lived birds have reached a documented 50 years of age. Interesting Fact: Albatrosses are among the largest of the flying birds, and the Great Albatrosses have the largest wingspans, reaching up to 12 feet.

This video shows typical bird behavior of the albatrosses on Bird Island, off the coast of South Georgia in the Atlantic Ocean. The video includes footage of the birds flying around the island, grooming each other and caring for their young.

For First Time, Scientists Find Evidence Of Birds Sleeping While Flying

For First Time, Scientists Find Evidence Of Birds Sleeping While Flying

A new study shows that frigatebirds can--and do--sleep while flying based on their brain signals, though the amount of sleep in the air is much less than on land. Some birds are known to fly continuously for long periods, but scientists had not been able to prove their ability to sleep while flying until now.  An international team made the determination by equipping frigatebirds on Galápagos Island with small devices that measure brain and head activity.  Frigatebirds, according to a news release by the Max Planck Institute, “are large seabirds that spend weeks flying non-stop over the ocean in search of flying fish and squid...” In fact, some of the participant birds were shown to have flown 1,800-plus miles for up to ten days.  Based on the readings, the team found that they tend to “sleep in flight with either one cerebral hemisphere at a time or both hemispheres simultaneously.”  Nevertheless, the birds slept much less in the air--about an hour per day--than they do on land, and scientists are still not sure how they are able to function “on such little sleep.”  This is one of the areas that will likely be explored in the future.

Cornell Lab | Kauai Laysan Albatross Cam

The Kauai Laysan Albatross cam is a collaboration between the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the Kauai Albatross Network. Watch live with news, updates, and FAQs at http://allaboutbirds.org/albatross The Kauai Laysan Albatross cam is back for a new season with three nests featuring all-new breeding pairs for 2018. Take a trip to the north shore of Kauai and watch along as all three nesting pairs wrap up their 2-month incubation and prepare for hatching within at the end of January! Visit the Laysan Albatross FAQ page (https://www.allaboutbirds.org/bird-cams-faq-laysan-albatross-nest/) for information on this year's nesting pairs. The first egg is likely to begin hatching tomorrow, Friday, January 26. Tune in now to experience the hatching of these magnificent seabirds live on camera! Watch cam. While the albatrosses might be the stars of the show, the cam site is also home to many other species of birds. You'll see (and hear) feral chickens, foraging Hawaiian Geese (known as "Nene" in Hawaii), wandering Hawaiian Moorhens, and inquisitive Common Myna going about their business throughout the day. In addition to capturing the commotion near the nests, the cam's new position will grant viewers a breathtaking panorama of the nest sites in a field adjacent to a steep bluff over the Pacific Ocean. Here we'll discover the intricacies of albatross air traffic control, where soaring adults will arrive and take off for their oceanic foraging trips, and soon-to-be fledglings will take long walks and stretch their wings to prepare for their first flights over the bluff. A special thanks to the cam site's private landowner and to our partners at the Kauai Albatross Network for helping to guide the Kauai Laysan Albatross cam into its fifth season. We hope you enjoy sharing in the adventures of another magical breeding season live from the Garden Island! YouTube thumbnail photo credit: Hob Osterlund, Kauai Albatross Network
