Brown Noddy

I his species spends much of the time flying over the sea. either in coastal waters or in mid-ocean. It flies low over the sea surface, beating its wings rapidly. When feeding, it hovers and then dips to snatch food from the surface. The main prey items are fish and squids. To rest, it usually comes ashore to perch on a rock or tree, but it sometimes swims and even sleeps on the water. The name is derived from the courtship display, in which both sexes nod to show off their pale foreheads.
