Wikipedia article

This article is about an older version of DF.
A small sea bird with great wings. It soars through the sky and dives for food on the surface of the water.

Despite its description, the albatross does not actually dive for food in-game. The most interesting thing about albatrosses is that they only appear on embarks containing ocean biomes; otherwise they are just another avian variety, exhibiting the same egg-laying and feather-laden behavior as all birds. They can appear one to ten at a time. Female albatrosses only lay eggs one at a time, making the species a poor choice for egg production.

Admired for their large wings
