That's interesting. They look so alike. I found this article which mentions that similarity also. "The Cape gannet is identified from the Australasian gannet by the all-black tail, a longer black stripe down the throat (from underneath the beak) and more extensive black on the face, but all of these features are difficult to identify unless at close proximity. The Cape gannet is also very similar to the northern gannet, but the latter differs from its entirely white tail and its wings, which are only black at the tip. It also is similar to the blue-footed booby (Sula nebouxii)."

Great capture and title! Would like to see a hint of junior's eyeballs; on my screen the baby's face is pure black.
