INTERESTING FACTS
The Red-Footed Booby has no brooding patch (bare skin on the underbelly) to keep their eggs warm. They use their webbed feet, which have an increased blood supply. The Red-footed Booby is one of the few seabirds who build their nests in small trees and shrubs. Since there are no predators on most islands where it breeds, this trait probably developed to avoid competition for nesting territory with larger booby species. A group of boobies are collectively known as a "congress", "hatch", and "trap" of boobies.
