Today's Bird: Magnificent Frigatebird

Today's Bird is the Magnificent Frigatebird.  The best place to see these birds is out at sea, but I got lucky with this one and happened to be on shore.  It makes for a better picture if the camera's not rocking.  This is actually my second life-Frigatebird, but my first US sighting.  The first one I ever saw was in Mexico while Emma and I were on a cruise.  I didn't expect to see any birds other than gulls and was delighted to catch a lifer!

I ran into Frigatebird #2 on South Padre Island on May 26, 2012.
