Magnificent Frigatebird

Seen just outside the entrance toll booth. Two large kettles flying relatively low and a good distance away from me and along the mangroves just east of the road to the park. No convenient place to stop and see all of them. The photo shows an exact count of 277, but there was another large kettle nearby (about equal in size) that I couldn’t see from where I stopped. Easily 450 total.
