Paille-en-queue #1

Le Paille en queue (Phaethon lepturus) est l'emblème de l'île de la Réunion. C'est un grand oiseau pélagique des mers chaudes au plumage blanc avec des traits noirs. Il possède également une très longue queue composée de deux plumes très fines ressemblant à deux pailles blanches trainant élégamment derrière l'oiseau en vol. Son bec est jaune. Cet oiseau marin se rencontre le long des falaises réunionnaises et le long des ravines perçant dans les terres. Il se nourrit de petits poissons pêchés en mer. Le Paille en queue niche dans les trous des falaises ou au fond des ravines. Il pond un unique oeuf d'octobre à décembre.

Western bluebird breeding habitat is semiopen country, excluding desert areas. The yearround range includes California, the southern Rocky Mountains, Arizona, and New Mexico in the United States, and as far south as the states of Oaxaca and Veracruz in Mexico. This one was shot in the Bryce Canyon National Park, so it can be found in southern Utah as well.
