Amy's Booby Boost
On your desk, do you have a favorite picture that you like to look at? Amy for example needs a Booby boost when at work..., "This is my favorite thing I can see from my desk. It is a blue-footed Booby. I ripped it out of my Audubon calendar once its week was past. I didn't even know they were real. Apparently, they always walk like that. The foot thing is actually a courtship move. The courtship of the Blue-footed Booby consists of the male flaunting his blue feet and dancing to impress the female. It works. I fell in love with him."
And if this is the first time you see a blue footed Booby, as it is for me, it's a gull-like seabird that breeds from the Gulf of California south to Peru, and during the summer a few stray to the southern California coast. And the name derived from the Spanish word clown = bobo. It's because of the goofy feet and the walk I guess.
