Jan-van-gent (Morus bassanus of Sula bassana) Artis, Amsterdam, The Netherlands Conservation status: Least concern

Gannets- large black & white birds with yellow heads, long pointed wings & long bills. They hunt fish by diving from a height into the sea & pursuing their prey underwater. A number of adaptations enable them to do this: No external nostrils; air sacs in their face and chest under their skin which act like bubble wrapping, cushioning the impact with the water; their eyes are positioned far enough forward on their face to give them binocular vision, allowing them to judge distances…

Northern Gannets, Northern Gannet Morus bassanus Fairly common winter resident in open Gulf of Mexico.
