GENOVESA ISLAND

STEEP CLIMB TO A ROCKY PLATEAU SUMMIT OF AN EXTINCT VOLCANO. VERY LARGE COLONIES OF NAZCA BOOBIES, RED FOOTED BOOBIES, BLUE FOOTED BOOBIES AND GREAT FRIGATE BIRDS. WE WERE LUCKY TO OBSERVE A SMALL OWL, THE ONLY REAL PREDATOR ON THE ISLAND. 

IN THE MATING SEASON THE GREAT FRIGATE BIRDS EXPAND A RED BLADDER ON THEIR CHEST TO ATTRACT A PARTNER.

BIRDS DISPLAYED NO FEAR AND WERE EVERYWHERE AND WERE CURIOUS OF VISITORS. WHILE WALKING YOU HAD TO AVOID STEPPING ON JUVENILES. imageimageimageimageimage
