Here are a few albatross fun facts from The Encyclopedia of Trivia
The Albatross can glide on an air current for several days and are believed they even sleep while in flight. It apparently dozes while cruising at 25 mph.
They can cover enormous distances, flying as far as 10,000 miles in 33 days, or up to 600 miles in one day.
Albatrosses feed mainly on squid and fish.
