Need a colorful plastic bird for your Galapagos diorama?

 Plastic Frigatebird

Something of a bully, a frigatebird is a kleptoparasite and steals food from other birds (we really only told you that because we wanted to use the word "kleptoparasite" in a sentence). The odds for other seabirds are evened somewhat by the fact that pirate birds waddle when they walk, don't swim, and are incapable of achieving lift-off from a flat surface. They can, however, stay in the air for a week. Pretty amazing.
