Boobies | Birds of the Galápagos

by Caroline Dowsett

The Galapagos are the home of three species of booby, a large diving seabird with unique dagger-like bills. They're part of the same family as the Gannet found in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. Interestingly, despite the three species breeding close to each other, generally do not fish close to each other. The Blue-footed booby fishes inshore; the Nazca booby fishes further out within the islands; the Red-footed booby is rarely seen fishing within the islands. A fourth species, the Brown booby is also occasionally seen on the archipelago.
