Blue Footed Boobies – Fact 2

June 16, 2011 § Leave a comment

Friday June 17th is Blue Footed Booby Day – to help celebrate we decided  to do a fun week of Blue Footed Booby Facts.

Blue-footed Boobies do not make nests, but lays its eggs on bare ground. The female Blue-footed Booby lays two or three eggs. Both male and female take turns incubating the eggs, while the non-sitting bird keeps watch. At the time the eggs are hatched, the nest area is surrounded by a ring of guano produced by squirting excrement in all directions during the incubation process. Blue-foots are one of only two species of booby that raise more than one chick.

If you are in the UK to donote to the Galapagos Conservation Trust Blue Footed Booby Day – It’s as simple as sending a text, just send ‘BFBD11 £2‘ (or any amount up to £10) to 70070.
