Northern Gannet (Morus bassanus) User: Stephane  (See all photos - 26)
Canada (Québec) Gannet from the Parc national de l'Île-Bonaventure-et-du-Rocher-Percé, Gaspésie.

The male and female gannets are nearly identical, but I believe this may be a male arriving at the nest. Each and every time the male lands at the nest, he launches into an attack on the female's neck. Here, we appear to see the female, right below the landing bird, exposing her neck in submission, to diffuse the male gannet's aggression.
