Red-footed booby.jpg

The smallest of all booby species, the red-footed booby (Sula sula) has distinctive red legs and feet, and a streamlined, torpedo-shaped body, well adapted for plunge-diving in search of prey. Unusually among members of the Sulidae family, the red-footed booby exists in several colour variations, or morphs, although all birds of this species have a pale blue bill. Both sexes are similar in appearance, although the female is usually much larger than the male, while the male has a longer tail. Juveniles of this species are usually brown or blackish-grey, becoming whiter or mottled grey-brown, while the legs are usually yellowish-grey, turning more red-brown with age.
