As we continued our walk on the island of Espanola, we then came to the waved albatross colony. Almost the entire world population of the Waved Albatross nests here each on Espanola each year. The large birds spend months and months at sea, but return here to mating and raise their chicks. The waved albatross has the largest wingspan of any bird in the Galapagos Islands, as much as 9 feet across. It is a large bird with a bright yellow beak and distinctive "eyebrows".
