Brown booby        Images © Mark A. Chappell

Brown boobies are birds of tropical oceans but occasionally stray to higher latitudes.   This one was photographed in Monterey Bay, California, where it frequented one particular buoy for several months.   Another tropical vagrant in the same area was a Nazca booby.
