The gannet that Oddo shape-changes into is a northern gannet

Large seabird with white plumage and black wingtips, blue eyes, grey-blue bill. During breeding season, head and neck turn pale yellow. Length 89-102 cm (35-40 inches)

Wingspan nearly 2 m (78 inches)

 

Nests on narrow cliff ledge. When migrating sleeps at night by floating on water. Short legs and large webbed feet make it slow and clumsy on land. Makes spectacular high dives 15 meters (50 feet) from the air to catch fish.
