There are three types of Tropicbirds species living on the oceans. The White-tailed Tropicbird and the Red-billed Tropicbird are the most abundant. These two species are found in the southern regions of the Atantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean surrounding North America, and throughout the Carribean Islands. The Red-tailed Tropicbird has the smallest population. This tropicbird is found in the Pacific Ocean and Indian Ocean. All three species are pelagic seabirds, living out in the oceans away from land masses, except when nesting or raising their young. Tropicbirds are recognized by their rapid wing beats, their long streaming tail feather, long pointed wings and mostly white plumage.
