New Zealand Gannets

The Gannet is a master of flight, a highly successful bird at catching fish and it is born with a lot of courage.

I am sure they have a lot of nerves, by the noisy sounds that they make while they have young in their nests and also many migrate to Australia for a while and then return. Most are Gannets of Muriwai.

I would like to know which ones you like best.

#3 Diving for fish food in the Waitemata

I was on a Whales & Dolphins tour that day and caught this shot, the Gannet is really lighting fast.

#4 Gannet Chicks at Cape Kidnappers

Nobody kidnapped this Gannet Chicks this is their place of birth.

Cape Kidnappers is in Hawkes Bay and it was named after a real kidnapping.

#5 Gannet over the Dark Sea

Yes, well Gannet and Tern flight, but the Tern is further away and smaller. The Tern is also very fast.
