The Gannet is a large seabird found in the [[Atlantic Ocean]]. It is three feet long and mostly white, with a yellow head and blue eyes; they can take four years to reach their full adult [[plumage]].
They nest in large groups on cliff ledges and small islands on the coasts of [[Europe]] and [[Canada]], although it is most common in the [[British Isles]]. They spend the winter at sea as far south as [[Mexico]], the [[Caribbean]] and [[Africa]]. They are also occasional visitors to the [[Great Lakes]].
Gannets catch [[fish ]] by diving into the sea at them from a great height.
