6/30/07 Espanola. The Waved Albatross, named for the fine pattern on its chest, breeds almost entirely on this one island in the Galapagos with a smaller colony recently discovered on Isla de la Plata, off the coast of Ecuador. The yellow tinge to the back of the neck is an attractive addition to the otherwise mostly gray-brown and white coloration. They weigh about 10 pounds, and have a wingspan of about 8 feet.
