Caption

Northern gannet (Morus bassanus) birds showing nape-biting behavior. This is the first behavior seen when a mating pair is reunited at the nest. It is important for the birds to renew their bonds after fishing trips. This pair of birds is nesting in the gannet colony on Bonaventure Island, Quebec. Each bird makes a nest out of rocks, dirt and seaweed. The nests are approximately a half meter apart.
