Thalassarche melanophris |
It can be distinguished from the Wandering Albatross by the dark eyestripe which gives it its name and a broad black edging to the white underside of its wings.
Adults have a orange-tipped yellow bill, but in young birds the bill is grey. Immatures also have a grey collar.
Black-browed is circumpolar in the southern oceans. It is the most likely albatross to be found in the North Atlantic due to a northerly migratory tendency.
