The Blue Footed Booby have a white-ish grey streaked head, with brownish dark stripe-like places, and white patches on the back of its neck and ....RUMP! It has white underpants- underpart. (hehehe) Blue Footed Boobys have large dark silver pointed beaks. And of course, being the Blue Footed Booby it has, well, BLUE FEET!
The blue-footed booby fishes near the coast.
Groups of a couple hundred birds have been seen hunting schools of small fish.
|The couple build their nest on the coast during the cold season (May to December). They produce two eggs which hatch after 45 days of being sat upon. The two Baby Blue Footed Boobys can be raised together if they have enough food. The male, who is the better swimmer, takes care of bringing home the food, while the fatter female stays in the nest to protect the Baby Blue Footed Boobys from the sun and Baby Blue Footed Boobys eaters.The Baby Blue Footed Boobys, once fully grown, learn to fly and fish with their parents, becoming independent after two months or so. (takes me 18 years...arg grrr)|
The blue-footed BOOBY is the most common
of the three species of BOOBY. Their mating ritual is highly
organized and really funny. see photos. The male stamps his BLUE feat slowly then pointing his beak toward the sky he
spreads his wings and whistles. Meanwhile, the female buries her beak in her plumage!
