Also, the head is large and is supported by a stiff neck. Their body is robust, weighing up to 12 kilograms. This makes it one of the most massive flying birds in its class.
They are considered among the best gliders, being able to stay long in the air without flapping their wings. This requires a continuous and robust wind.
They are located in the southern hemisphere, from Antarctica to South America, Australia, and South Africa. However, some live in the North Pacific. Three species live from Hawaii to California, Japan and Alaska, and another in the Galapagos Islands.
They have developed a sense of smell, which they use to locate their food, which includes fish, squid, crustaceans, jellyfish, and carrion.
When at sea, Diomedeidae are solitary, although they often move in flocks. When they locate an area with abundant food or nesting sites, these birds may form large groups.
Usually, in the water, they are silent animals, but when competing for the food, they emit various sounds, characterized by their screeching. When on land, vocalizations such as grunts and groans are accompanied by the multiple displays they make during courtship.
Breeding colonies may be very noisy. However, as the reproductive process progresses, the number of cells decreases.
The young may defend themselves from intruders by pouring over them the regurgitation of their stomach contents, which is accompanied by an oily substance, characterized by an unpleasant smell.
Among these characteristics are high reproductive success and longevity, being able to live between 40 and 50 years. However, man has altered this balance in various ways. There are many causes associated with the albatross population declines.
