The fowl appears to be the identical fowl photographed in Seattle, WA on July twentieth because of the distinctive plumage since it’s a subadult. Tasli watched the Nazca Booby circling and sitting on the water on the south finish of Trial Island for 8 minutes earlier than she noticed it fly SE at a fast tempo. She adopted it because it flew SE for five minutes till it was out of sight. She was in a position to get hold of video documentation and pictures of the fowl as nicely.
