New Zealand Gannet by carterr New Zealand Gannet by carterr
* wingspan up to 180 cm
* overall length 90 cm
* a single egg is laid around September/October November
* incubation time about 44 days
* chicks stay in the colony until February/March
* the birds then migrate to Australia, returning after 2-6 years
* it is said that (after weeks of furious flapping of wings on land) the first flight of the juvenile birds takes them to their destination more than 2000 km away.

Gannets never cease to amaze me. Every time I see one plummet into the water, its just incredible how fast they hit the water. It must be even better to see it up close, and in person rather than through a screen....
