EDITORS COMMENTS
This stunning photograph captures the Great Frigatebird, Fregata minor nicolli, a remarkable seabird specimen collected during Sir Robert Falcon Scott's British Antarctic Expedition of 1910-1913, also known as the Terra Nova Expedition. The image is part of a small series of bird specimens gathered by the expedition team during their stop at South Trinidad in July 1910. The Terra Nova Expedition was a significant scientific endeavor, with a broad program that aimed to collect thousands of geological and zoological specimens from the Antarctic region. This Great Frigatebird, a member of the Fregatidae family and the Suliformes order, is a native of the Caribbean and the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. It is known for its distinctive red gular pouch, which it inflates during courtship displays to attract mates. The photograph offers a rare glimpse into the ornithological discoveries made during the Terra Nova Expedition. The sauropsid, or reptile-like, bird is perched on a wooden surface, its wings spread out, revealing the intricate details of its feathers. The image is a testament to the meticulous work of the expedition's naturalists and their dedication to documenting the natural world. The Great Frigatebird's collection is an essential addition to the extensive scientific records amassed during the Terra Nova Expedition, providing valuable insights into the avian life of the Caribbean and beyond. This historic photograph serves as a reminder of the important role that scientific exploration plays in expanding our knowledge of the natural world and preserving its wonders for future generations.
