BLACK NODDYAnous minutus


Typical of the three widespread species of noddy which are all similar in appearence, this species is found mainly in the tropical Atlantic and Pacific, breeding on most if not all islands in that region. It is often replaced in the Indian Ocean by Lesser Noddy, which is very similar (the two were lumped at one time). This third species has so far eluded my camera.
