Thalassarche chlororhynchos (Atlantic yellow-nosed Albatross to you)

With an avian write-up of such rapturous heights, I'm sure we readers
as one, wish to take a squizz at the Atlantic Yellow Nosed Albatross.

whom grateful thanks.
To see the bird in flight, go to
where there are several more images, and a video sequence of its
breathtaking flight.
