[Photo] Indian Yellow-nosed Albatross (Thalassarche carteri) head.

The Indian Yellow-nosed Albatross, (Thalassarche carteri), is a small mollymawk in the albatross family. The smallest of the mollymawks, it is difficult to distinguish from the closely related Grey-headed Albatross and Atlantic Yellow-nosed Albatross, the latter with which it was long considered conspecific and is still considered by some a subspecies of. It can be distinguished from the Atlantic Yellow-nosed by its head, the grey plumage of which is lighter on the Indian Yellow-nosed.

The Indian Yellow-nosed Albatross breeds on Prince Edward Island, the Crozet Islands, Kerguelen Island, Amsterdam Island and St Paul Islands in the Indian Ocean. At sea it ranges from South Africa to the Pacific Ocean just beyond New Zealand. It is considered to be an endangered species due to dramatic declines in the last seventy years, caused by interactions with long-line fisheries and the outbreak of introduced diseases.

The binomial commemorates the English ornithologist Thomas Carter.
