White-capped (Shy) Albatross (Thalassarche cauta)

Hout Bay, South Africa, November 16, 2022

I've been a fan of albatross (albatrosses?) since sighting the first one at the southern end of the world in 1993. The Shy Albatross was one of two new albatross species seen during our day of Pelagic birding on November 16, 2022 offshore Hout Bay in South Africa.

See my travelog for more details of that trip: South Africa Birding & Wildlife Safari.
