Strange Birds

This post features a pair of birds that are commonly seen on the island, but not usually seen as they are here. The first is an immature brown booby that had swallowed a needle-nosed fish that was a bit too big for it. I found him sitting on a rock near the little beach at wilderness trying to swallow his breakfast. When I left him he was still working on it.

The next is a male magnificent frigatebird, something we see often around Grand Case Bay, but this one, for reasons unknown left his red neck pouch flapping in the breeze as he flew. Usually it is contracted and not noticeable.
