blue footed booby bird. Boobies hunt fish by diving from a height into the sea and pursuing their prey underwater. Facial air sacs under their skin cushion the impact with the water. Boobies are colonial breeders on islands and coasts. They normally lay one or more chalky-blue eggs on the ground or sometimes in a tree nest.

Yes, I have cool feet!! (Blue Footed Booby, Galapagos Islands, Ecuador) [photo by Cory Randell, 6/30/2004].

This famous bird is often used as a symbol of the Galapagos Islands, and it’s not hard to see why! It’s the only seabird known that has gripping feet, and they can be seen in their hundreds on the Genovesa Island. Curious about the name? Booby comes from the Spanish word for ‘Silly’.
