As your cruise ship leaves the port at St. John’s, it will probably be followed by several magnificent frigatebirds. They soar effortlessly in the sky without ever flapping. The bird’s wings can span seven to eight feet. You may hear Antiguans call them weather birds or man-o-war. Their aerometric design is so perfect that they can stay aloft for days and up to a week. The longest recorded flight was nearly 140 miles.
