Red-Tailed Tropicbird in Kaua'i

Today, I visited the Kilauea Lighthouse in Kilauea, Kaua'i which is home to many different birds.  Here is a shot of a darting Red-Tailed Tropicbird or Phaethon rubricauda.  It nests on the Hawaiian Islands and is seen widely in tropical and subtropical areas of the Indian and Pacific Oceans.
