A male Magnificent Frigatebird (Fregata magnificens). 
Magnificent Frigatebirds populations are widespread, occurring in the tropical Atlantic, breeding colonially in trees in Florida, the Caribbean and Cape Verde Islands. It also breeds along the Pacific coast of the Americas from Mexico to Ecuador including the Galápagos Islands, though the Magnificent Frigatebird on the Galápagos Islands is genetically and morphologically distinct, suggesting  the Galápagos population has not been exchanging any genes with their mainland counterparts for several hundred thousand years.
