Magnificent Frigatebirds

A few more shots from the deceased Panasonic Lumix FZ-50. These were taken on the very last day of its life, on the southeastern coast of El Salvador, near the town of La Union.

All these birds are, of course, Magnificent Frigatebirds. The top bird is an adult male, while this white-breasted bird is an adult female.

Here's another male. I actually have my new camera already, a Canon PowerShot SX20 IS, but I haven't had opportunity yet to use it.

Magnificent Frigatebirds breeds in the Caribbean and on islands on both sides of Central and South America. Nobody knows where the nearest breeding colony for these birds in the Gulf of Fonseca is.
