Arrrrrggh this here be the Red-bearded Bee Eater (Nyctyornis amictus) that woulda made a fine companion fer ol’ Captain Red Beard here. Too bad for Captain Red Beard, though, that these birds are solitary species, nesting alone in burrows tunneled into the side of sandy banks. Not exactly the most social of birds. You might be able to lure them out with some plump lizards, wasps, or BEES (their favorite food as their name implies), however.
But those don’t usually constitute a balanced diet on the open ocean. Better luck with a a more sea worthy bird, Cap’n.
