Red-billed tropicbird on Texel island beach


This video says about itself:

A visit to the tropical island of Saba to study the rare and beautiful Red-Billed Tropicbird.

Translated from Ecomare museum on Texel island in the Netherlands, on 20 December 2016:

A white bird with long wings and a red bill: you could not get around it, this must be a red-billed tropicbird. The dead animal washed up on the Texel beach. Texel denizen Job ten Horn found the tropical vagrant, a new species for the North Sea. Red-billed tropicbirds are large, graceful white seabirds which spend their lives over the tropical oceans. They eat fish and squid. Wandering over the ocean, they sometimes wander into northern regions.
