These scoundrels don't like to do much fishing, and so you can see them trying to distract boobies and other birds to snatch the prey caught by others. They are most spectacular during courtship when the male bird inflates the flap of bright-red skin found under his beak. It looks like a great red balloon and is stunningly colorful.

This famous bird is often used as a symbol of the Galapagos Islands, and it’s not hard to see why! It’s the only seabird known that has gripping feet, and they can be seen in their hundreds on the Genovesa Island. Curious about the name? Booby comes from the Spanish word for ‘Silly’.
