Brown noddies are gray-brown birds with an indistinct gray-white forehead and crown. The legs, feet, and bill are black. Their common name comes from the stereotyped head nodding courtship displays between adults. Several thousand nest on Sand, North, and East Islands, making this the second most numerous species using Johnston Atoll.
