Cape gannet

Morus capensis

The Cape gannet originally ''Sula capensis'', is a large seabird of the gannet family, Sulidae.

They are easily identified by their large size, black and white plumage and distinctive yellow crown and hindneck. The pale blue bill is pointed with fine serrations near the tip; perhaps because of the depth and speed of the gannet's dive when fishing , its beak has no external nostrils into which the water might be forced.
