Dec 08, 2018 - National Geographic Islander
Today we visited Genovesa, a great way to finish our expedition. Due to its location, Genovesa is a paradise for seabirds. This island is surrounded by deep water; perfect for many seabirds with pelagic feeding habits, including the red-footed booby, the Nazca booby, the great frigatebird, the red-billed tropicbird, and the swallow-tailed gull.
Nazca boobies are in full breeding season and red-footed boobies were all in courtship, or at different stages of their breeding cycle. We also saw the short-eared owl. The sunset was a perfect way to finish this wonderful week.
