These Tropicbirds were found on Kilauea Point on the north end of Kauai. The nesting season for the Red-tailed Tropicbird is from March through October. They nest under vegetation or on cliffs near the coast. Although they are graceful in the air, they are very awkward on land, unable to walk forward They feed by diving from great heights to catch fish.
Be sure to visit Wild Bird Wednesday this week!
