There’s some extraordinary information about albatrosses in the latest issue of The New York Review of Books (the article is not yet posted on the site).
Some albatrosses may live beyond 60, “leading researchers to postulate that the average albatross will travel more than 3.7 million miles in a lifetime”. “Parents have been known to complete a global circumnavigation just to provide a feed for a chick.”
This is all gleaned from Eye of the Albatross, which sounds well worth a read.
