Nazca Booby (Sula granti)
Nazca Booby (Sula granti) monotypic
Boobies and Gannets (Sulidae)
Puerto Ángel, Oaxaca (Oax), Mexico
Adults. Reminds a lot of Masked Booby, but the orange bill on adult birds is diagnostic. In the field I judged that there was only one bird present, but it looks like the bird on photo number 2 and 3 is different from the others. Compare left underwing with the wing of the bird on photo 4. Scarce visitor all along the Mexican Pacific coast. Breeds in the Revillagigedos.
