The Albatross: A bird of legendThe Albatross is a large seabird that is known for its impressive wingspan, which can reach up to 12 feet. These birds are typically found in the Southern Hemisphere, and are known for their powerful and graceful flight. They are also known for their long lifespans, with some individuals living for over 50 years. In literature and culture, the Albatross is often seen as a symbol of good luck and freedom, as well as a reminder of the dangers of the sea. However, it is also referenced in Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s poem “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner” as a sign of bad luck, as the mariner kills an albatross, bringing doom upon his ship and crew.
