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.
