Flying with the Albatross

Hey guys - I am struggling on the Timeless Isle, where I need to fly to this red pool to get a battle pet. I know I have to fly on an albatross but when I fire at them they die. My character is lvl 120 (obviously too powerful to draw there attention). Could someone please explain what a hunter at this level should do to get the albatross’s attention without killing them. Thank you.
