INTERESTING FACTS The red-footed booby… flies above the ocean
to forage and scan for prey, dropping swiftly in a plunge-dive or
shallow-angle dive once prey is spotted. They often catch flying
fish in the air. Most booby species nest on the ground, but the
red-footed nests in trees, which provides protection from ground
predators for this smallest booby. Show More
