Location wise, it's likely to be a Round Scad, which is the inshore species. However, it looks a lot more like a Mackerel Scad, which is a pelagic species. Did the booby catch it right there in front of you, or did it catch it somewhere else? If it was elsewhere, it's probably a Mackerel Scad.

It already had the fish when I noticed it. I suppose it could have flown in with it. There were a bunch of Gannet both in the water and flying overhead. I was busy checking out all the juveniles trying to find a Common Eider that had been being reported. I came away from and scope and there was the Gannet with it's fish. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
