Laysan Albatross

Phoebastria immutabilis

Description:

From allaboutbirds.org: "One of the most marvelous sights in the Pacific ocean is the graceful glide of a Laysan Albatross at play among the winds and waves. These expert soarers can travel hundreds of miles per day with barely a wingbeat. They nest on islands of the tropical Pacific, but they may head out to Japan, the Aleutian Islands, or California to feed. Laysan Albatrosses are numerous, though they face threats from longline fishing, plastic trash in the ocean, and predation by dogs, rats, and cats."

Notes:

Seen at the Monterey Bay Aquarium

One of the Albatross, they don't include any on their website and some are pretty hard to tell apart, so not sure which species this is.
