This article is about the current version of DF.
A small sea bird with great wings. It soars through the sky and dives for food on the surface of the water.

Albatrosses are a species of bird found inhabiting the coasts of oceans, appearing in groups of anywhere between 1-10 individuals. They do little but fly through the air, and are only slightly bigger than a cat, being benign and harmless to dwarves. They may scare pastured livestock if they're on the surface, however, leading to repeated re-pasturing jobs. All albatrosses are born with Legendary skill in climbing.

Albatrosses can be captured in cage traps and trained into cheap pets. They produce more returns when butchered than domestic birds, but the effort of catching and breeding them is, perhaps, too great - if put in a nest box, they only lay a single egg at a time, making them terrible for egg production.

Some dwarves like albatrosses for their large wings.

Admired for their large wings.
