Home Alphabetical Maps Taxonomic Links/Resources

The upper photo of lesser noddies was taken offshore in August 2010, courtesy of Tony Evans. All of the lower photos were taken on Maziwe Island (1-12). For comparison, brown noddies are in the center and left of the 5th row photo, the others lesser (photo courtesy of Paul Oliver); and again in the lower photo a brown noddy is in the background: note the silver-coloured cap and lores in the lesser noddy, the larger size and black lores in the brown noddy. The enlargements (click photo above to see) include some closeups by Paul Oliver that show the differences well.
