Galapagos Wildlife: Frigatebirds
Frigatebirds have a well-earned reputation as the pirates of the skies above the Galapagos -- they are notorious for stealing food from other birds -- an evolutionary necessity as frigatebirds do not have water-proof wings like other sea birds! But even pirates have to settle down, and the male frigate's conspicuous ruby gullar sac and rapturous high-pitched cries are ideal for attracting a mate. Make plans to join IE in Galapagos.
