Caption: Brown booby (Sula leucogaster) incubating its eggs. Brown boobies lay between one and three eggs, although usually only one offspring survives as the first chick to hatch pushes the others from the nest. The nest is incubated by both parents and eggs hatch after around 43 days. Filmed in the Swan Islands, Honduras.
