Antarctica #11 - Birds in the Falklands

Discussion in 'Birds' started by bobhoge, May 14, 2005.

  1. On New Island in the Falklands there is a large colony of nesting Black-browed Albatross. This is the only time they are on land. They were going through their pair bonding rituals:

    All this activity brought on a photo frenzy:

    Noted wildlife photographer Tom Mangelsen is using the tripod, he was a paying passenger on this trip. This December (05) he is the Guest Photographer on the Photo Expedition:
