 Chimay is the MAYA word for Frigatebird: (Fregat  magnificens)

 Large, black , soaring bird with slender wings and  forked tail; one of the most effortless and agile  flyers of the avian world.

 The sight of a frigatebird is a sign to sailors that  land is near. Frigatebirds were used to carry  messages just like carrier pigeons.

 The frigatebirds can tell if another bird is carrying  food back to its nest by cries it makes when  approached.

 By its incredible navigation skills, frigatebirds can  pluck flying fish out of the sea while they leap. The  large red throat sac is grown by male frigate birds  to attract females during breeding seasons.

 Sometimes frigatebirds will steal other birds food  from their mounts in midflight.
