GIF-Picture of a Masked Booby. Masked Booby

The masked booby is the largest of the booby species and, like the brown booby, lays two eggs(but raises only one chick) in a small, insignificant scrape on bare earth. It is all white with a black trailing edge on the wings and has a yellow bill and a small, black face mask. Its bright golden eyes are a very distinctive feature when observed close-up.
