Bird Pic Of The Week

Red-footed Boobie (`A)

(Sula sula)

Where: Oahu, HI • Ka'ena Point

Notes: This is another shot of our smallest boobie species, the Red-footed, from our latest adventure out to the northwest corner of the island of Oahu in the state of Hawaii. Ka'ena Point has a landscape that is so amazing, it boggles my mind. The mountains of the Waianae Range trickles into the ocean and disappears. Plus, it has an ocean view that is bordered with jagged black lava rock; the open sea constantly collides and plumes against them, To top it all off the occasional pelagic bird cruises by as they traverse that pointed corner of the island. This seabird's coloration is most likely making the transition from the immature's brown plumage to adult plumage (SEE: ADULT PLUMAGE) which is all white with black along the back edge of its wings. With a little ocean breeze these birds sneak up on the point quickly so I had to be alert and ready to shoot when one popped up over our position.
