Blue-Footed Boobies reign over Isla de la Plata (nicknamed The Poor Man's Galapagos) with their pigmented feet and impressive adaptions. Their colored feet can range from light blue (usually in younger birds) to intense turquoise depending on food accessibility and abundance. To retrieve their prey, Blue-Footed Boobies will dive upwards to 25 meters (82 feet) into the ocean hitting the water at 60 mph. To prevent food theft from other bird species, Blue-Footed Boobies often consume their prey underwater as they surface. Like other seabirds, their feet are webbed making them clumsy on land and earning them the title "bobo" or foolish in Spanish.
