BROWN NODDY

INFORMATION

The Brown noddy or Common noddy lives in colonies as a safety measurement. They are usually seen on top of the heads of pelicans in the attempt of fishing any leftovers, or they pick food from the surface of the water. They are the only entirely dark body tern.

The nodding movement at each other when performing the courtship ritual gives them their name. They lay one single egg every mating season.
