Common and cute, Blue-footed Boobies are the favorite birds of many Galápagos travelers. Blue-footed Boobies are in mating season during April and May, giving visitors the chance to see them do their fancy dance. During the booby-mating season, male Blue-footed Boobies do a fancy courtship dance with lots of hooting, honking and pointing their beaks skyward. This takes place on different times on different islands, but around March-May is a good time to see this particular spectacle.
Blue-footed Bobbies are members of the Sudilae family, which includes 10 species of gannets and bobbies and which is considered part of a larger pelican order. These birds are the size of large seagulls. Female bobbies weight 20-30% more than male birds. You can find these birds in most islands in the archipelago, at the shoreline and spot them all year round.0
