- Hi all,
Tried to send this out earlier, but my connection went down. Brian, I hope
you don't mind that I used your photo to illustrate this.
My first thought about the frigatebird, without reading the description, was
that the pale bill and underwing were exactly like I remembered Lessers from
the Marquesas and the Tuamotus last spring. Here
(www.levalleyphoto.com/gallery/viewphoto.php?id=1054) is a photo of a female
Lesser that I shot on Hiva Oa in the Marquesas April 28, 2006 (on the
right). Compare it to the photo of Brian's on the left and I think you'll be
Quite the sighting.
