While the Golden variety of the White Tailed Tropic Bird (more commonly known as the Golden Bosun) is endemic to Christmas Island, the “plain” variety can also be found on the island.

The White variety is distributed throughout the tropic region of the Atlantic, Indian and Pacific Ocean.

Here’s one taken from Isabel Beach Lookout. See how clear the sea is, you can see the corals underneath.
