For K-MO

I'm not a bird watcher by any means but my friend K-Mo is, and having followed his blog and his birding adventures I keep an eye open more often when I see one or hear news of an unusual spotting.

Case in point: Conchas Lake in eastern New Mexico where a Blue Footed Boobey has been spotted.

The natural breeding habitat of the Blue Footed Boobey is tropical and sub-tropical islands off the Pacific Ocean, most famously the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador. They have also been spotted in the Gulf of California.

Go figure.

New Mexico is a nice state to visit, I invite the birds to stick around and relax... heck have a green chili cheeseburger while they are at it.

Check out the story here:


I'm out.

I really, REALLY wanted to go chase that bird - boobies are rare in North America and the Blue-footed in particular. But it just wasn't meant to be.

Boobies are rare in America? In LA maybe where they are all fake. LOL, otherwise we have plenty of them in Congress.
