Not just Blue Footed Boobies here...the Waved Albatross gets their nests on here.

While their mating dance doesn't involve the comical dancing of the boobies, the waved albatross definitely puts on a sweet show.  Our photos don't really do this justice, but there's lots of open beaks (above) and beak fencing (below) between the males and females.

Check out the slick pattern on their chest and you'll see where the name comes from...

Seven-foot wing-span...

Keeping an egg warm...

A threesome gone terribly wrong...

Amazing island.
