Blue-Footed Boobies
By Sheri Skelton
  

1     You might think the blue-footed booby is a funny name for a bird. But its name fits the bird very well. The blue-footed booby has bright blue feet. Booby comes from the word "bobo." It's a Spanish word that means "stupid fellow." The blue-footed booby is clumsy on land. It's also very friendly and tame. This could mean trouble for the bird.
 
2     The blue-footed booby is a little less than three feet long. It weighs a little more than three pounds. Its brown wings are long and pointed. Its head and thick neck have brown and black streaks. The rest of its body is white. Its tail is a wedge shape. Its eyes are yellow.
 
3     The blue-footed booby eats only fish. It is an expert hunter. The booby flies over the water. It keeps its long bill pointed toward the water. When it spots a fish, the booby dives into the water. It barely makes a splash as it goes into the water. A few moments later, the booby pops up with the fish. The blue-footed booby doesn't have to be flying to catch fish. It can dive as it floats on top of the water.
