Man-of-War aka Frigate

The Frigates are a common bird in the Caribbean. We saw some from the resort, but many more roosting on utlity wires that cross the Errol Flynn Marina in Port Antonio. It is known locally as the man-of-war. The male has a pouch on the neck that can be inflated. We think the one with the white head in a juvenile.
