My lifer the White-tailed Tropicbird is my post for World Bird Wednesday and Nature Notes
During my short stay in Bermuda I was able to pick up one lifer..it was the White Tailed Tropicbird. It is also known as Bermuda's bird. The white-tailed tropicbird is seen on Bermuda quarter and nickel.
In Bermuda it is locally known as the long-tailed tropicbird. It was a common bird seen all over Bermuda. I thought it was a beautiful bird white it's long white tail feathers.
Horseshoe Beach was the one place I was really able to watch them. They would fly all around the beach and ocean just like seagulls. It was neat to see them land on the rocky cliffs. They are known to lay one single egg on the ground or on a cliffs edge.
Below I was able to watch the Tropicbird flying into a small crevice on the cliff.
They disperse widely across the oceans when they are not breeding. The adult is a slender white bird with long white tail feathers. It feeds on fish and squid by surface plunging.
