A PHOTO A DAY HELPS …… Day 119

Today, I want to share with you some more intimate photos of GANNETS at their nests and interacting with each other. I love their faces: pale blue eyes and bills, with delicate black outlines.

 

Gannet are monogamous and may remain together over several seasons, if not for all of their lives. The pairs separate when their chicks leave the nest but they bond again the following year. Should one of the pair die, the other bird will find another mate.
