Perth, Australia - Booby (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Dear Members and Bird watchers!

Coming in from behind, flying low. I just give it a quick glimpse and thinking another Crested Tern with white body and grey/ black mottled wings. Flying low should have alert me, I never see any Tern flying low like this.

I notice that the bird is very big just before it lands on the water and I look in the binocular. It looks like a booby and I try to take pictures even though the bird is quite far away.

Is it possible to ID this bird from the very poor picture?

Booby is not an option in eBird

Kind Regards and Happy Birding
