Albatross mother feeding its baby
This big baby is only a few days old.
This is his first feeding .... in 7 days. (Not unusual)
An Albatross can measure about 2.5' long, weigh 10 pounds, and have a wingspan of 7'.
Albatrosses lay only one egg per year at most. Incubation takes about 64
days. The two parents take turns incubating the egg, with the male taking the
first shift. Incubation shifts can last several weeks, and the incubating bird
fasts during that time. After hatching, the parents go on long foraging trips
during which they may travel 1,600 miles and stay away for up to 17 days. The
chick takes about 5.5 months to grow to adult size and take to the air. Once in
flight, these young birds will not touch land again for 3–5 years.
