Blue Footed Boobies in San Clemente

The Blue Footed Boobies have migrated to San Clemente Ecuador, from the Galapagos islands presumably for the warmer water and food supply.

It is nice to be around these birds.  We are not predators to them, so they let us get pretty close to them.

I have been in the ocean swimming with them only 10 feet away or so.

Here is a video of them on the rock near my house.  Watch for one of them to drop a load off on the rock.

 

Here are some pictures:

  1. great job of capturing the personalities of the boobies! i love the photo of the one looking back over his (her?) shoulder! they are here at el matal as well, and i hope they decide to live here full time and not just for a vacation destination!

  2. When we were in Otavalo they were selling tshirts with “I love boobies” written on the front, and a pair of the feet in an um appropriate spot. I thought it was hilarious! They really are unique birds, and so cool to let you get so close. We took oodles of pictures of them sitting in pairs at Isla de la Plata last year. They explained that the males and females have different shades of blue feet. Very cool! 🙂
