A medium sized albatross showing uniformly dark grey head and neck with a bright yellow bill with a prominent black spot on the end of the lower mandible.
The whole world population breeds on one small rock called 'The Pyramid' in the Chatham Islands (last image). after breeding these birds disperse into South American waters for the winter although odd records of them in Australian and recently South African waters exist.
This species has been split from the White-capped and Salvins Albatross.
