Some facts about the Blue-footed Booby Bird:
A tropical seabird with famous bright blue webbed feet, a brown and white-streaked head, blue-grey facial skin, and a solid white body, it may approach 1.5 meters in wingspan. The bird itself is a little under a meter long (about the size of a goose), with a long curved neck. They can live as long as 17 years.
Though best-known as a Galapagos inhabitant, the Blue-footed booby can be found on several other arid islands off the western coasts of tropical America, Mexico, and northern South America, from the coast of California to southern Peru.
