Northern Gannet (19)
Jun 10 2017
Gannets engaging in typical gannet behaviour. From the Parc national de l'Île-Bonaventure-et-du-Rocher-Percé, Gaspésie.

Males and females frequently engage in "fencing", where they knock their beaks together with their necks outstretched. It always happens in the minute after a mate arrives at the nest.
