424 Magnificent Frigatebirds flew past the Florida Keys Hawkwatch on Friday September 16, 2015!!! Frigatebirds are a perk at our site since few other North American hawkwatches encounter the species regularly. The official counter this day was Ted Keyel. Video by Rafael Galvez.

I originally shared this video on Facebook and have never had so many shares and so many views before. I thought you may appreciate if I shared it through our blog.

    They’re migrating with their throat sacs inflated? Fascinating!
