What's Included

In Hawaiian, frigatebirds are known as iwa, or pirate birds. They make their living snatching fish from other seabirds. Capable of gliding at very high altitudes, frigatebirds build their nests on secluded mangrove islands around Sanibel and Captiva. Sometimes you just gotta lie on your back in the sand and look up to learn.
