    Comments: First noted by its large size and the distinctive long, narrow-winged look of an albatross. A prominent white rump patch was noted. Bill size and shape was clearly seen to indicate alabatross. Bill was not dark, it was grayish in my view. When the bird banked clear, white belly feathering was noted. From a side view white feathering on the head was noted.
