Masked Boobies: Rose Atoll Part Two

The Masked Booby is such an elegant bird however the young are endearing and almost comical – as the first two photographs show.  There were a few chicks and juveniles on Rose Island and I saw several adults flying.  The young were at the edge of the vegetation by the high tide line and appeared unperturbed  as we walked by.
