Blue-footed Booby mates sky point dance on North Seymour Island, Galápagos, Ecuador.
A Blue-footed Booby (Sula nebouxii) pair does a sky pointing mating dance on North Seymour Island, part of the Galápagos archipelago, a province of Ecuador 972 km offshore west of the continent of South America. The Sulidae family comprises ten species of long-winged seabirds. The name “booby” comes from the Spanish term bobo, which means "stupid" or "fool/clown," which describes its clumsy nature on land. Like other seabirds, they can be very tame. Blue-footed Boobies breed in tropical and subtropical islands of the Pacific Ocean.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
