Red-Footed Booby, Sula sula
This smallest of boobies is also the only tree dweller, wrapping its huge, unlikely red feet around the narrow branches. The Palmyra color morph is particularly beautiful: mostly white except for dark gray primaries, outrageous blue bills trimmed in pink, and bright turquoise eyelids. We watched them far out at sea performing spectacular flight maneuvers to catch flying fish in midair.
