PIC OF THE WEEK: 02/13/17 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2017 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Chesapeak Bay, VA • Dockside Fishing Center Boat
Notes: This three foot long seabird with an almost six foot wing span is shaped for skillful flight, even in the midst of a very stiff ocean wind. Its pure white body with black wing-tips, distinctive black facial-striping, and peach airbrushed head, make it a uniquely handsome species. They are very social birds and are most often seen in flocks. Gannets even breed together in very large colonies numbering in the thousands on cliffs along the Northeastern Canadian coast. These pelagic birds roam the ocean along the Atlantic coast as far south as the Gulf of Mexico during the winter months. Occasionally a northeast winter breeze will push them closer to the shore where they can be seen from the beach. The Northern is the largest member of the Gannet family and are closely related to Boobies, including the Red-footed Booby in the south Pacific (SEE: PIC OF THE WEEK 04/11/17). Gannets are most known for their amazing plunge-diving, dropping like a torpedo from high above into the sea. This aerial dive allows them to reach great depths of thirty to seventy feet quickly in pursuit of small fish, their primary diet. They are a unique combination of beauty and strength.
