Blue Footed Booby

The Blue Footed Booby is a magical looking bird. I took the photo above while traveling with my dad through Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. People say that the name booby is derived from the Spanish word "bobo" which means fool in English. Their scientific name is Sula nebouxii and they are found on islands in the Pacific ocean.
