Lesser Frigatebird

2 adult male, 2 adult female observed for 2 hours, then a flock of 9 sailed through and joined out in bay creating flock of 23 strong.

1
Christmas Island Frigatebird

A large Adult male bird flying alone, but behind large flock of lesser frigates. Distinguishing features was the distinct cut-off of the white belly at the lower chest! Black head, absolutely no hint of ‘armpits’ or russet colours which are often confused with Juv and female Lesser Frigatebirds. Should note that the white belly was distinctly ‘clean-lined’ and for want of a better description ‘cup shaped’. Cut-off was slightly concave.
