A male Frigatebird makes his intentions clear to a passing female, Galapagos Islands.
“A walk through a colony of frigatebirds during the courtship season is a spell-binding experience. The great frigatebird colonies reverberate with eerie calls and the masses of red pouches draw the eyes, as nature intended. The vibrant atmosphere as the males do their utmost to attract a mate can almost be felt. This spectacle alone can make a trip to the islands worthwhile.”
Michael H. Jackson, Galapagos, a Natural History.
