  • Kleptoparasitic activities by Great Frigatebirds (Fregata minor) on Masked Boobies (Sula dactylatru) were quantified on Henderson Island in the South Pacific. The frequency of kleptoparasitic attacks increased towards dusk, the time when most Masked Boobies returned to the roost site. Masked Boobies returning to the roost low (i 30 m) over the water were significantly more likely to be chased than those returning at a higher altitude. Single boobies were also significantly more likely to be… CONTINUE READING
