Black-browed Albatross, Tierra del Fuego, Chile

The Black-browed Albatross (Thalassarche melanophrys) is a member of the medium-sized albatross group generally referred as "mollymauks". This is predominantly a sub-Antarctic species which breeds in many islands around the Southern Ocean and is widely distributed around the offshore and inshore waters of Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego and Cape Horn. Just recently a new breeding colony was discovered in a group of islets located the deep Almirantazgo (Admiralty) Sound, in western Tierra del Fuego, Chile. These individuals were photographed during early October 2008; there are over 100 active nests on this islet which is covered by tussock-grass stands. © Photos by Enrique Couve, Fantastico Sur Expeditions.
