White-tailed tropicbirds are white birds with two long, thin white tail feathers. The wing edges and eyes are lined with black, and the bill is yellow. Viewed from below, the birds appear to be pure white. This species prefers to nest on cliffs, but nests recently have been found on the ground under shrubs on Johnston Island.
