Frigatebirds


Lesser Frigatebird male

Portland Roads, Cape York

October 2012


I'm not so good with seabirds being an inland boy. These are some frigatebird pictures taken back in 2012 at Cape York. They seemed just high enough to be out of reach of my lens but I just managed to get good enough id pics, I think. They looked so graceful and unique coming home from the sea.

Hmmn, I think, "Lesser" young female, hmm, maybe male?
