Peruvian Booby

Sula variegata (von Tschudi, 1843)

The Peruvian Booby (Sula variegata) is an endemic bird of the Peruvian current whose distribution is restricted to the west coast of South America from Punta Pariñas (4.6°S) in Peru to Concepción in Chile. It is the second most abundant seabird species that inhabits the Peruvian coast and the second most important guano-producing seabird. During the mid-twentieth century, the Peruvian Booby population reached 3 million birds. Source: Wikipedia
