The Kilaeua Lighthouse

on Kauai's North Shore is full of seabirds.
I only saw the Laysan Albatross, Red Footed Booby, Magnificent Frigate Bird, a few Brown Boobies and Nenes. The shearwaters were not yet there and despite my best efforts I did not spot either Tropicbird.
This fellow was headed right for us with the updrafts and I caught him pretty well. The trick is to ignore those in the distance and have a good long lens.
