Salinas, Ecuador

A Blue-Footed Booby Outpost

Sailing around the Pacific coastal town of Salinas, the westernmost city on mainland Ecuador, we came across blue-footed boobies. The name booby comes from the Spanish word "bobo" (which means "silly" or "idiot") because they are known to be clumsy on land and rather bold towards humans (as demonstrated from this photo).
