Caption: Black-browed albatross (Thalassarche melanophrys) on its nest. This large seabird constructs its nest out of mud and stones, packing the material with its large bill. The nests are returned to annually by the monogamous breeding pair. The black-browed albatross is found in the southern oceans, where it feeds on marine crustaceans called krill. It breeds on Antarctic and sub-Antarctic islands. Photographed on the Falkland Islands.
