Kevin & I read an article about the blue footed booby in the press enterprise.

It’s rare but was spotted in Lake Skinner near our home.

We searched the day area & marina at Lake Skinner and spotting several bird species but not the Blue footed booby. Then while walking a trail near the water edge we found a few fellow birders and decided to join them. That made all the difference one of our fellow birders spotted the juvenile Blue footed booby in the water. 🙂
