Macronectes giganteus - Southern Giant Petrel. Giant petrels are aggressive predators and scavengers, which has led to the other common name they were known as, the Stinker.They look a bit like albatross, except for the tube nostrils on the top of their bill - albatross bills have the two tube nostrils opening seperately, further up.
