Red-Footed Booby (Sula sula) in flight. The Red-Footed Booby breeds on islands in tropical oceans. It winters at sea, and is therefore rarely seen when away from the breeding colonies. Boobies are spectacular divers, plunging into the ocean at high speed. They mainly eat small fish or squid which gather in groups near the ocean surface. Although they are powerful and agile fliers, they are particulary clumsy on takeoffs and landings. Kilauea NWR, Kaua'i, Hawaii.
