boobies

• 19 comments •


The animal that we saw most frequently on shirts, postcards, and tour itineraries in the Galapagos was the blue footed booby. We were pretty disappointed that we didn't even see one on the first 5 days on Puerto Ayora. On our tour to Isabela we finally saw hundreds of them.
