Room for one more?  A seabird hovers above a huge colony consisting of 100,000 birds and tries to find an spot to build a nest on the edge of a cliff.  The massive flock of northern gannets are just two feet away from each other as they sit on their eggs and build nests.<br />
<br />
Some of the seabirds can be seen flying above the colony as they swoop in to catch fish and seaweed in the water below.   Successful birds then fly home with the dark red seaweed in their beaks to help construct a new nest.<br />

Photographer Dipanka Sarma, from Toronto, Canada, travelled to Bonaventure Island, near Perce, Quebec, to take the pictures.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
