Look at my blue feet!

Blue-footed Booby, North Seymour Island, Galapagos, Ecuador

“Look at my blue feet…how did that happen?” At least that is what this Blue-footed Booby seems to be saying. I thought you might enjoy a close up of the Blue-footed Booby after yesterday’s action panel of the dance. On North Seymour Island where hundreds of pairs nest the Boobies are everywhere…right beside the trail…and even in the trail. It is not really a colony. The Nazca Boobies on Espanola are definitely a colony…the birds nest on a particular section of cliff overlooking the sea. On North Seymour the Blue-footed Boobies are apparently spread randomly over the whole island. It is amazing to walk among them.
