Sula leucogaster plotus - Brown Booby

The Brown Boobies were usually nesting over near the edges of the Scaevola bushes.

Younger checks had white down, which gave way to mostly dark juvenile feathers. Adults became two-tone like the one on the right below.

The juvenile below still has a tuft of white down on its forehead.
