    To Diana, yes the water is making them look blue, they are white with black markings and orange beaks. Good eye!

    Tori, we have two very similar sea birds here in Hawaii - White-tailed Tropicbird & Red-tailed Tropicbird. So beautiful to see them in flight. I am sure now, but some used to nest in the Halemaumau Crater, but it erupted violently about fourteen month ago. Hawaii's Big Island

    Hi Tori - Gorgeous photo of these truly beautiful birds. I've been lucky enough to see them, as we lived in Bermuda in 1994/5, and I'll never forget how thrilled I was when they finally arrived over the Great Sound. As I have just found JPG when I Googled "Bermuda longtails", I owe you many thanks on both counts!
