An Introduction to the Birds of Tropical America

    Pelagic Birds  

Pelagic means 'at sea' and pelagic birds spend the majority of the year far from shore. For a month or two they visit land, often a remote island, and nest. Pelagic birds are under threat from modern fishing methods and from plastic pollution in the oceans. The last two sections are the only page I didn't have photos for, so photos are from Wikipedia with attribution.
