CLOSED: Juveniles - brown booby or northern gannet

Couple of photos, these guys were flying from shore (cliffs) to our boat and back in Saba (near St Kitts).

Brown Booby, from the darker head contrasting with the paler belly - Gannet is more uniform. I'd guess that Gannet would also be very rare that far south.

I thought so but I was hoping. I just saw a mandaran duck in Lakeland FL, so you never know anymore where you will see a bird :)

Thanks as always.
