Galapagos Birds – Magnificent Frigatebirds in Contrast

The Magnificent Frigatebird is 100 cm (39 in.) long with a 215 cm (85 in) wingspan. Males are all-black with a scarlet throat pouch that is inflated like a balloon in the breeding season. The contrast between the inflated versus deflated pouch above is striking.
