Black noddy

The nests of these birds consist on a level platform, often created in the branches of trees by a series of dried leaves covered with bird droppings. One egg is laid each season, and nests are re-used in subsequent years.

The Black noddy is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

The press announcement referred to Black Noddy as in the style of Bavarian Schwarzbier and it looks the part. My trusty mini-Maglite revealed that it is actually a deep garnet red brew. As you can see from the picture above, the head was thin. I can attest that the brew was poured rather cold. I will post an addendum with the results of a “proper pour.” Aroma: Naturally, a brew poured too cold will have its aromas impaired. More

The Black Noddy is another 16oz beer that comes in an aluminum can. I'm sold on enjoying craft beer in a can. My own home state brewery, Oskar Blues, does the same with all it's store sold brew. It certainly makes a 6-pack much lighter in weight than a glass bottle 6'er. The Black Noddy Lager poured nearly black with a slight mahogany edging in the glass. More

The Black Noddy (Anous minutus) is a small tropical tern that occasionally shows up in the United States, usually in the Dry Tortugas on Florida's keys. These shots were taken at Fort Jefferson on the Dry Tortugas back in April, 1996, with a Canon T-90 and FD 400mm F/5.6 lens. The images were taken from a bouncing boat as a group of us cruised past the large colony of Brown Noddies (A. stolidus) that is a summer bird there. More

Black Noddy LagerBlack Noddy is a Schwarzbier from Buckbean Brewing in Reno, Nevada, one of the four that they sent me.

Here’s their description: This is a traditional Bavarian Schwarzbier style with a deep color and a smooth rich flavor. More

About 13 inches long, with a white cap and dark brown or black body, this bird is similar to the Brown Noddy.
