Bon Dia,

We stay at Costa Linda and have been coming to Aruba since 1984. We saw this bird for the first time today. Can you please identify this bird/duck for us? Thank you.

Jeff and Allison: The bird is an adult Brown Booby, a tropical seabird that can be seen regularly passing by offshore on Aruba. We have also enjoyed watching them roosting on the old German shipwreck.
