Albatrosses (Procellariiformes: Diomedeidae) are large birds that mostly occur in the Southern Hemisphere (Sick, 1997).
Other birds (10%) are marine species, including the Procellariiformes, which are encountered mostly in the open ocean, and other species such as the Common Eider, Thayer's Gull, Glaucous Gull, Thick-billed Murre, and Black Guillemot, which are found on Arctic coasts.
