Black-browed Albatross (Thalassarche melanophris) Science Article 3

abstract

Procellariiformes are well known for their excellent homing abilities (see references in Matthews 1968 and Dall’Antonia et al . 1995, Warham 1996). Albatrosses, in particular, have a reputation as skilful oceanic navigators since they can cover enormous distances during foraging flights and pinpoint a specific remote island where their colonies are located.
