[Daily Photos 08 August 2005] Salvin's Albatross, Proclamation Island, New Zealand

Salvin's Albatross, or Salvin's Mollymawk (Thalassarche salvini), is a large seabird that ranges across the Southern Ocean. A medium sized mollymawk in the albatross family, it was long considered to be a subspecies of the Shy Albatross. However molecular analysis has shown that it and the closely related Chatham Albatross (also considered to be a subspecies of the Shy Albatross) are actually sister taxon to each other, and more distantly related to the Shy. All three are now widely regarded to be separate species. The species was named by Lord Lionel Walter Rothschild for the distinguished ornithologist Osbert Salvin.
