The Goal and Mission of the American Bald Eagle Foundation
The American Bald Eagle Foundation is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) educational foundation dedicated to the protection and preservation of bald eagle habitat through sponsoring and facilitating educational and research activities. We strive to make research available to everyone who wishes to live in greater harmony within the eagles' environment.
The Red-tailed Tropicbird nests on oceanic islands in large colonies from the Hawaiian Islands to Easter Island and across to Mauritius and the Reunion Island and in Australia, they nest on Queensland's coral islands (including Lady Elliott Island) and islands off Western Australia.
When breeding, they mainly choose coral atolls with low shrubs, nesting underneath them (or occasionally in limestone cavities). They feed offshore away from land, singly rather than in flocks. They are plunge-divers that feed on fish, mostly flying fish, and squid.
The Red-tailed Tropicbird is listed as a Vulnerable Species
