The sadly deceased bird depicted
is a young Red-tailed Tropicbird. It was photographed at Old Gulch on
Lord Howe Island.

It took me a while to twig to its identity even knowing they were
breeding nearby.  And without knowing the location I wouldn't have picked
it as a Tropicbird.

But Nikolas Haas, Peter Shute, Philip Griffin, Chris Corben, Mark Clayton,
Tom Wilson, Lawrie Conole all did - apologies if I missed anyone.
