The Magnificent Frigatebird is a member of the order Suliformes. In the past the bird was sometimes called the Man O'War or Man of War. Which was a reflection on it aerial piracy of other birds. The bird is widespread in the tropical Atlantic, breeding colonially in trees in Florida, the Caribbean and Cape Verde Islands. It also breeds along the Pacific coast of the Americas from Mexico to Ecuador including the Galápagos Islands. The Magnificent Frigatebird is about 40 inches long (100 cm)with an 85 inch wingspan (215 cm). Males are all-black with a scarlet throat pouch that is inflated like a balloon in the breeding season. Females are black, but have a white breast and lower neck sides, a brown band on the wings, and a blue eye-ring that is diagnostic of the female of the species. The Magnificent Frigatebird feeds mainly on fish, and also attacks other seabirds to force them to disgorge their meals. Frigatebirds never land on water, and always take their food items in flight.
