Gerard Jones, Nauru's weightlifting trainer (age 47, super class, 143 kg) hunting Noddy birds. Recording of a Noddy bird distress call is played. Noddy birds, coming back from foraging at sea, hear the call and then usually swoop down. The hunter catches them in a large net and then kill the birds by biting down on their necks. The birds, a local delicacy, are later cooked and eaten or sold 1 US$/bird, a way to compliment an income...Nauru, officially the Republic of Nauru is an island nation...
