Magnificent Frigatebird

Fregata magnificens

Description:

A large seabird (35-45") with a wingspan of 7ft! Pictured here with Ospreys. Frigatebirds are notorious thiefs and the Ospreys know well enough to chase the frigatebirds away from their territory.

Habitat:

Oceans and shores

Notes:

First day we saw only one, but by the end of the week, we were seeing them in numbers up to 12!
