Black-browed albatross colony on Steeple Jason Island in the Falklands.  This is the largest breeding colony of black-browed albatrosses in the world, numbering in the hundreds of thousands of breeding pairs.  The albatrosses lay eggs in September and October, and tend a single chick that will fledge in about 120 days, Thalassarche melanophrys Doug Cheeseman (left), founder of Cheeseman's Ecology Safaris, and professional photographer and guide Patrick Endres (right) enjoy the spectacle of the enormous breeding colony of black-browed albatrosses at Steeple Jason Island, Thalassarche melanophrys Black-browed albatross, Steeple Jason Island.  The black-browed albatross is a medium-sized seabird at 31-37" long with a 79-94" wingspan and an average weight of 6.4-10 lb. They have a natural lifespan exceeding 70 years. They breed on remote oceanic islands and are circumpolar, ranging throughout the Southern Oceanic, Thalassarche melanophrys
