Level 4 close activity

I am learning to put in the correct words for level 4

The largest of all flying creatures is the albatross, which can have a wing span of 3.5 metres.
The bill of this huge seagull is long and powerful.
The albatross's territory (1) is the southern oceans of the place (2) where it
may sometimes travel great distance(3). One albatross, found near the Chilean
oceans (4), had a special identification tag fastened on(5) its neck which
had been put up(6) in New Zealand only 12 days earlier. For (7) that
brief time the bird had flown  (8) 4800 kilometres, an average of 400 meters (9)
daily – an amazing feat of endurance.
They(10) are capable of flying at speeds more(11) than 90 km/h. Their
outstanding ability to fly(12) and glide far better than any
other(13) bird has led to them being said (14)
'the prince of soaring birds'.
They eat(15) mainly on squid, fish, shrimp, and
other (16) creatures that are found near the top (17)
of the sea. They also swoop down (18) on scraps thrown overboard from ships.
Sometimes(19) they will follow a ship for continuous (20) days.
Albatrosses will alight on the ground (21) surface, but only when it is dry (22).
They visit land in the breeding sometimes(23) for a brief time. Adult birds live(24)
out at sea for two or even (25) three years.
