Baking: Black-footed Albatross


Phoebastria nigripes

Length: 25-29 in Wingspan: 6-7 feet Weight: 0.5-1.5 lbs


Dark front and back, with light undertail coverts and front of face.



Nests primarily on the Hawaiian Islands. Throughout the year, found wandering large portions of the Pacific Ocean.

Cool Facts:

Albatrosses have an excellent sense of smell, which they use to track down food on the open ocean.

The Black-footed Albatross roams huge portions of the Pacific Ocean on its 7-8 foot wingspan; a single foraging trip may see a bird fly several thousand miles nonstop from its nesting grounds in Hawaii to the shores of Alaska or Japan, then back to feed its chicks.
