Baby Boobies

Isla Isabella is a nesting site for Blue footed Boobies and Frigate birds. We decided to paddle surf boards to shore. We thought it would be simpler than unloading the dinghy off the front of Nomad. We were wrong. However, we paddled in to a tiny beach directly in the middle of a standing room only section of the island where nests of boobies were every 3 or 5 feet. All the fledglings were in various stages of being cute and white and fluffy. More in another blog.
