frigatebird sp.

Female with light upper wing bars, white on upper breast-seen from below 95% of the 10 minutes it was well out on the lake 3/4 mile and 500' elevation. Chin, throat, head appeared black but not confirmable by me under conditions. Accepted as Frigatebird sp. by Indiana Bird Records Committee. Other species, esp. Lesser Frigatedbird were not safely separated at this distance in the field. There is at least one other Great Lakes record of Lesser Frigatebird in Michigan.
