p.1 #1 · Galapagos- Blue footed- parenting


Normally two eggs are laid- the second being an insurance egg.
If food is plentiful, both babies may survive.

Were you there for a month?!!!! Nice progression from egg to adolescent. Are you ever at home or do you just keep travelling the circuit. Don

Thanks John, ac, Birdie, Tim, Dorian, KCollett, Don, Tam, and kmunroe.
I sorta liked the frazzled look of the adult in the last image.
I had traveled to Peru to see the Inca archeological sites and decided to go to the Galapagos. Flying to Guayaquil, Ecuador, I found a reputable local travel agency that offered a two-week tour of the islands- at a price I could afford (about $600 at the time). Flying to the islands, I joined seven other tourists on an old 50-foot converted fishing boat, and off we went.
Back then I worked for a year or two (saving money like mad), quit my job, and went traveling for several months (I knew how to travel cheap ). Then I flew home and did it all over again.
But I'm done with travel now. Luckily- I took pictures .

I saw a special on Galapogos last night on National Geographic. It was wonderful. They stated that normally one chick will push the other out of the nest and that the parents don't interfere.
Really was a great special . You must have some wonderful memories from that trip. Did you see the cormorant that can not fly?

Hi Charlie,

The first is a bit tight in the front. I love the others.

Thanks Birdie, Ron, Morris, Chris and Bee.
The first born doesn't always push its younger sibling out of the nest; I suspect it has to do with the struggle for food. The bigger baby always eats first- but if its stuffed, the smaller one usually feeds. I saw many single youngsters, and a fair amount of twins also.
The flightless cormorants. Yes, I saw them. Scraggly looking and short wings. It's easy to think they are on their way to losing wings altogether. It'll take awhile though. Evolution is slow.
As a life-long slide shooter, I do sometimes shoot too tight .
Charlie

I like it when you show off your Blue-footed Boobies

Well done Charlie and that expression in the last shot is adorable! Would make for a great animated figure
