Salvin's Albatross (Thalassarche salvini), Humboldt Current off Valparaiso, Chile

Salvin's Albatross (Thalassarche salvini), Humboldt Current off Valparaíso, Chile
























Vigorously taxiing to take off, a Salvin’s Albatross, Thalassarche salvini, speeds up generating enough lift force to become airborne in the rich waters of the Humboldt Current in the Pacific off Valparaíso, Chile. This medium-sized albatross breeds in islands south of New Zealand and crosses the huge Pacific basin to forage in this productive marine ecosystem, becoming one of the regular albatross species to be found in a pelagic trip off Valparaíso.


Carreteando vigorosamente para despegar, un Albatros de Salvin, Thalassarche salvini, genera la sustentación necesaria para elevarse en las ricas aguas de la Corriente de Humboldt en el Pacífico frente a las costas de Valparaíso. Este albatros mediano anida en islas al sur de Nueva Zelanda y cruza la enorme cuenca del Pacífico para alimentarse en este productivo ecosistema marino, convirtiéndose en uno de los albatros que se observan con regularidad en excursiones pelágicas desde Valparaíso.
