(Blue Footed) Boobies!!

The story goes that they were originally called bobo birds, or stupid birds (and believe me, they do look real stupid), and that boobies is simply an English approximation… After watching them dive for fish, I’m actually really impressed now.  And no one really knows why their feet are blue (there’s a red-footed one too).
