Blue Footed Booby      North Seymour Island   

Boobies spend months on the open water foraging for fish & squids & only come on land to breed & take care of their chicks.
Boobies dive from heights of up to 90m & can plunge 9m deep into the water to get fish.  Underneath the water they might
even swim farther on using their wings as propulsion. Their name comes from the Spanish bobo,
meaning 'clown' or 'stupid' Males whistle & females honk.
