Brown noddy (Anous stolidus)
The brown noddy is a seabird from the tern family. It is the largest of all noddies and can be told apart from the closely related black noddy by its larger size and dark brown plumage. The brown noddy is a tropical seabird with a worldwide distribution, including Hawaii, Tuamotu Archipelago, the Seychelles and Australia in the Pacific Ocean, the Red Sea and the Caribbean. The brown noddy is colonial, usually nesting on cliffs or in short trees or shrubs. It only occasionally nests on the ground. The female lays a single egg each breeding season.
