"The Waved Albatross" Galápagos Islands Local Custom Tip by windsorgirl
Galápagos Islands Local Customs: 24 reviews and 27 photos
Considered to be the rarest bird of the Galapagos Islands is also the largest. The Waved Albatross has a wing span of 2.5m, making it an expert flyer but less than graceful while on land. These birds spend most of their time flying to different locales in the South Pacific, but return exclusively to Isla Espanola every year from April to December to hatch and rear their young. This mating pair did not leave their nest while we were visiting, but apparantly, their take offs and landings are quite hilarious to watch.
