Great Frigatebird (Fregeta Minor)

28th July 2010

I have seen 3 species of Frigatebird at Mantanani Island last April 2010 but only managed to digiscoped the Lesser Frigatebird. On my recent visit to Semporna town about 537 km from Kota Kinabalu, did not expect to see these rare bird circling above the Dragon Inn Floating Hotel where I was staying for few days.

Digiscoped with Nikon Fieldscope EDG85 via FSA-L2 adapter on Nikon D300s.

Thanks to my best friend TS Wong for pointing out the identification of this bird via Facebook yesterday :)

Happy birding !
