Birds of Paridise
Galapagos Adventure

I have never seen so many different species of birds.
We saw the blue footed boobies and fuzzy baby boobies They are amazing and so entertaining. The male boobies do dance, spread their wings and put their beaks in the air and make a whistling sound to attract the females. Also, found out the deeper the blue of their feet the healthier they are.

The male frigate bird billows up his red pouch to attract females. They are called pirates of the sea because they steal food from the other birds. The frigate birds have no oil in their feathers and would drown if they dove in the water.
