Wandering Albatross

The Wandering Albatrosses, Diomedea exulans, are very large birds and have the largest wingspan of any other bird, with some uncorroborated reports of 13 feet! The average wingspan is 8.2-11.5 feet, and they weigh nearly 25 pounds….almost 3X that of the Bald Eagle (9.1 pounds)! Some Wanderers have been measured with bill lengths greater than 7 inches!
