Black Browed Albatross

John Douglas

Elizabeth Bay, Australia

Artist's Description

A Black Browed Albatross chick tests it’s wings in it’s mud nest, getting ready to try flying. A younger chick looks on.
West Point Island, originally known as Albatross Island, was a popular site for slaughtering seals and penguins for oil at the turn of the 19th century. Literal overkill helped to end this industry in the area.
Today many Albatross and Rockhopper Penguins still inhabit the island.
