Photo @jasonedwardsng A male Magnificent Frigatebird inflates his bright red gular sac in display as he shelters his mate with a wing. These masters of aerial combat are notorious for harassing other seabirds whilst in flight, forcing them to regurgitate their catch which the frigatebirds snatch in flight. They are quite literally the pirates of the skies over the Galápagos Islands, hence their name ‘frigate’ coined from the fast and manoeuvrable sailing vessels of our early maritime history. .
