Red-foot Boobie release at Half Moon Caye!

We managed to finally release 3 of our Red-footed juvenile Boobies a while ago! Dr. Tom and me, who are currently volunteering here, were allowed to join the Boobies to their release sight at Half Moon Caye. Half Moon Caye is a property of the Audubon Society in Belize. It is home to a colony of Red-foot Boobies, so it was the perfect place to release our joyful friends.

One of the birds fell from a nest as a baby, while the other two visited an office, behaving too tame to be released right away.

The last months we took care of them and fed them.

The day before the release some last cuddles were shared between our releasable ones and one of our non-releasable Boobies.

Finally, the day of the release! The office Boobies took off first, while the former baby hesitated for a bit until he flew away!

Thanks to everyone who helped BBR in raising these wonderful birds by hand or by donating to the rescue!
