I had to chance to visit Bora Bora earlier this month. Locals will say
there aren't many birds there, but I was able to snap a few and wanted to
share.



For more information on the birds of French Polynesia, the Polynesian
Ornithological Society ("manu" - https://manu.pf/?lang=en ) is the
primary source.

Also seen on this trip was a chestnut-breasted mannikin and red junglefowl.
No pictures, didn't have the camera with me.



On a previous trip I was able to capture a picture of a Brown booby:
