A magnificent frigatebird attempts to pilfer the meal a blue-footed booby is trying to feed its chick.

Another birder spotted a blue-footed booby showing signs that it would shortly feed its half-grown chick. A magnificent frigatebird noticed as well. It descended on the booby parent and child, hoping to harass them out of a few morsels, but didn't appear to win so much as a bite.
