Magnificent Frigatebirds soar over the ocean on outstretched wings with their head drawn into the shoulders. They rarely flap their wings, but when they do their wingbeats are slow and deep. Despite being a bird of the ocean, they don't dive after fish; instead they skim fish from the surface of the water or chase other birds, forcing them to give up their recent meal. These birds were a regular sight overhead.
