Kleptoparasitism is a foraging strategy that involves stealing food from other animals.Frigatebirds are seabirds that are known to engage in kleptoparasitism, especially on other nesting seabirdssuch as boobies and tropicbirds. This paper reviews the kleptoparasitic behavior of frigatebirds, focusing onthe factors that influence its occurrence, frequency and success. The ecological and evolutionary implicationsof kleptoparasitism for frigatebirds and their prey is also assessed. The paper draws on evidence from variousstudies conducted in different regions of the world, including the Indian Ocean, the Pacific Ocean and theCaribbean Sea. The review indicates that kleptoparasitism is a complex and dynamic behavior that reflectsthe interactions between frigatebirds and their environment.
