Travel theme:Birds

Birds is the theme of this week on ailsa’s blog. I choose the blue footed booby seen in Ecuador. Enjoy !

[FR] Les oiseaux sont à l’honneur cette semaine sur le blog d’ailsa. J’ai choisi un souvenir d’Equateur, les fous aux pieds bleus.

[ES] El tema de la semana en el blog d’Aisla es “Aves”. Para illustrar este tema, elegio algunas fotos de piqueros patiazul, encontrados en Ecuador. Disfrutan !

If your budget isn’t fit for the Galapagos islands, you can still see the blue footed booby easily on a day trip to Isla de la plata, near Puerto Lopez in Ecuador (if you’re lucky and it’s the season, you’ll be able to observe whales on the way). Some of their nests are right on the trails !

Blue footed booby and her eggs-Isla de la plata, Ecuador

[FR] Si votre budget ne vous permet pas d’aller aux îles Galapagos, vous pourrez observer les fous aux pieds bleus sur l’isla de la plata (l’île d’argent), au large de Puerto Lopez, en Equateur (si vous êtes chanceux et que c’est la saison, vous pourrez observer en chemin des baleines). Certains des nids sont au milieu du chemin !

[ES] Por los que no pueden ir a los Islas Galapagos, los piqueros patiazules se pueden observar facilmente en la Isla de la plata, cerca de Puerto Lopez en Ecuador (si tienen suerte y que es la temporada, podrian observar tambien en el traje en bote algunas baleinas). Algunos de los piqueros hacen sus nidos en el camino !

  1. OK, I like birds as much as the next person but I would be mad to have them snatching my fish meant for market or my consumption. They should not be lazy but catch their own meals!
