  • Boobies and gannets
  • Description
  • Boobies and gannets are large seabirds with long, heavy, pointed wings and long tails. Most have light-colored underparts and darker upperparts. Many members of this group are white. They are strong flyers, alternating between powerful wing beats and long glides. Most are sociable, nesting in colonies and foraging in flocks. They eat fish, squid, and other aquatic creatures, which they catch with spectacular plunge-dives. 
  • Boobies and gannets
  • Their eyes are set forward on their heads, and this gives them binocular vision that aids them in foraging. When they plunge into the water, they use their wings to swim. They begin breeding at two to six years. Gannets and boobies are monogamous, and often form long-term pair bonds. Males bring nest material, and females build the nests. Both members of the pair help incubate the young by tucking one to three eggs under their webbed feet. Incubation lasts up to eight weeks, and the parents alternate in three-day shifts. Some species do not fledge until they are almost six months old, and are commonly dependent on both parents for up to nine months after that. Boobies are found in tropical waters, while gannets can be found in more temperate seas.
  • vultures
  • The family name, Cathartidae, comes from the Greek word for cleanser, and that is exactly the function these scavengers serve—cleaning dead animals from the land. They are often seen soaring overhead, looking for dead animals to eat. Their bald heads help them stay clean when eating carrion. These sociable birds often gather in communal roosts at night and will gather to feed around large carcasses. Their nesting sites are usually far removed from the disturbance of humans. They generally lay two eggs, which both parents help incubate. They regurgitate ingested food for their young
  • sandpipers,Phalaropes
  • This large and diverse family of shorebirds is made up mostly of northern breeders that migrate long distances. Their highly migratory nature leads them astray fairly frequently, and rarities often show up outside their normal range. Many of these mostly coastal birds forage in relation to the tides, rather than the time of day. They use a variety of foraging techniques, but the most common techniques are picking food from the ground or water, or probing into wet sand or mud
  • Bald eagle The Bald Eagle (Haliaeetusleucocephalus) is a bird of prey found in North America. It is the national bird and symbol of the United States of America. This sea eagle has two known sub-species and forms a species pair with the White-tailed Eagle Bald Eagle
  • Its range includes most of Canada and Alaska, all of the contiguous United States, and northern Mexico. It is found near large bodies of open water with an abundant food supply and old-growth trees for nesting.
