Hi all,

Those interested in the recent thread on albatross ID, might
like to visit a revised article on the identification and relationships of
Wandering Albatrosses, and in particular the recently split Tristan
Albatross. This is a shorter version of the article that appeared in
"Africa: Birds & Birding", but there are more illustrations (15), so you can
decide for yourselves how variable these things are! See (

We still have much to learn about the identification of the recently split
albatrosses; constructive comments most welcome!

Best regards,
