Subject: [OrangeCountyBirding] Magnificient Frigatebird at Newport Back Bay
Hello, I was driving along Newport Back Bay at approximately 11am and sighted a Magnificient Frigatebird circling over the cliffs. After it circled, it headed South East and then I lost it. I'm assuming this is the same bird that was seen at Bolsa Chica this morning. Large black bird with long forked tail and white chest. I have a couple of very distant and blurry photos that I posted on my eBird checklist:

Good Birding,

Chezy Yusuf
Torrance, CA.
