Birdorable 193: Masked Booby

Cute Birdorable Masked Booby

The Birdorable Bonanza continues with our 193th bird. The Masked Booby is a type of seabird that breeds on tropical islands. They are the largest species of Booby and are named for their dark grey facial mask. This is our totally cute Birdorable Masked Booby.

I have no idea what this next one is! 8D Some sort of songbird, perhaps?

Uh, a hmm, a crow or magpie of some sort, or maybe Ashira's right... I hope one of the new birds is some type of peacock...

I keep hoping for a pine siskin, and this one just might be it. I must say, the photos accompanying the Birdorable renditions are just amazing!

It does look sort of corvid, now that Addie mentions it. :3 We'll just have to wait and see! I'd also love a Birdorable Dodo. : D

Sorry to disappoint you, but it's not a crow, magpie or pine siskin. We also don't have a peacock as part of our Birdorable Bonanza but it's definitely on the list of birds to do. Tomorrow's bird is a common Eastern US backyard bird. :)

Get robbed by the Frigatebird who grabs him by the tail and flips him over cuasing him to drop the fish he caught
