Magnificent Frigatebird

Overview
Magnificent Frigatebird: Large black seabird, orange throat patch inflates into a huge bright red-orange balloon when in courtship display. Long bill is gray, hooked. Wings are long and narrow. Tail is forked; legs and feet are dark gray. Eats fish, crustaceans, jellyfish. High soaring flight.

Range and Habitat
Magnificent Frigatebird: During breeding season, found in coastal Florida and in tropical Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. In non-breeding season, occurs from the coast of North Carolina south to Florida and west to Texas; also on the coast of California. Preferred habitats include ocean coasts, bays, and islands; nests on mangrove islands.

INTERESTING FACTS
The Magnificent Frigatebird was sometimes previously known as Man O'War, reflecting its rakish lines, speed, and aerial piracy of other birds. Although it spends most of its life flying over the ocean, it rarely if ever lands on the water. Frigatebirds are the only seabirds where the male and female look strikingly different. A group of frigatebirds are collectively known as a "fleet" and a "flotilla" of frigatebirds.
