Brown Booby

9 am boat to West Ship Island. Brown Booby was spotted flying toward Gulfport near Channel Marker #55. Further out a Brown Booby was spotted flying toward Gulfport near Channel Marker #47. Both sightings looked identical with juvenile plumage and a uniform dark brown appearance to the upper sides. I was on the top deck looking down as the bird flew by but unable to get photos. I am only counting one bird because the same bird could have circled back around.
