don't have an opinion on the id of this albatross
but it's not unusual for older black-footed Albatross to have a lot of
white on their head even a white wash over the entire head

stumped as to how to tell for sure. Can anyone point out anything
definitive that would ID them one way or another? The bill on the other
one was identical color and condition to the one in the photo.
