Gannets and Boobies

(Family Sulidae)

Famed for their spectacular plunging dives, six species of these large, wide-ranging seabirds have been recorded in Australia. Five species are breeding residents of Australia, while the Cape Gannet Morus capensis, from South Africa, appears only as a vagrant. The Abbott’s Booby Papasula abbotti breeds only Christmas Island.
