This is the second largest Albatross species, the Southern Royal Albatross. They, as well as most other Albatrosses, nest on small, remote islands in the South Pacific Ocean. However, there is a small nesting colony of Southern Royal Albatross on the New Zealand mainland at the tip of the Otago Peninsula. It takes eleven months for the single egg to hatch and for the chick to leave the nest. As a result, these birds only have a chick every other year.
