|Frigate Bird Colony on Barbuda|
March 20th. Meet Goldilocks. He was our local guide to the Frigate bird colony on Barbuda.
|Channel markers off Tom's shoulder and bow of the boat|
|Yes, we were that close to land going FAST|
|Goldilocks tossing dead branches to provoke an aerial fight|
|Bird taking the branch back to it's mate.....if it makes it....the other birds have other ideas|
|So many birds|
|chicks, nests and adults mixed everywhere|
|Chick and then two non-attached males - puffed out and looking for love|
The water near the frigate colony was full of thousands of jelly fish of all sizes. Goldilocks said they were harmless and showed us by scooping one up. Tom scooped several up. They were not pretty like some jellyfish but really rather ugly and gross.
|Jelly fish - thousands|
|small, weird, ugly jelly fish|
It was all very interesting. If you go, we would recommend Goldilocks. You can reach him by calling on VHF radio to the Coco Point Hotel and telling them you want to book Goldilocks. Or he has a cell - 722-54-74. His VHF broke.
