Magnificent Frigatebird - Female

We know this is a Female Magnificent Frigatebird because it has a blue eye ring (Great Frigatebird on the other hand has a red eye ring). Juveniles have a whiter face and throat. They stay still until their parents with food come back to the nest. Just like human babies, they scream when their parents arrive with food demanding for attention and food. They stick their heads down the parents' throat to pick up and eat the food.
