You might accuse me of being hyperbolic, but this species of bird is known as the Magnificent Frigatebird (Fregata magnificens). I love how this photo almost seems like it was shot in black and white, but it’s worth checking out the Magnificent Frigatebird in color too. It has a bright red throat pouch, which can inflate like a balloon.
