Black Browed Albatross chicks Each Albatross builds a nest out of guano that is slightly larger in diameter than its downy, gray albatross chick. Rockhopper Penguins and Blue-Eyed Shags wander freely throughout the Albatross rookery.

Black Browed Albatross with chick Albatross chicks have oversized beaks and black stripes running around the sides of their face, so it looks a little like they are wearing beak masks.
