Booby Pond Nature Reserve


The largest colony of red-footed boobies in the Caribbean nests at the Booby Pond Nature Reserve. That’s a mixed blessing. It’s interesting to watch the brown adults do battle with the frigate birds around sunset. When the boobies bring back the catch of the day for their young, the frigate birds swoop in, harassing the food-bearing boobies until some of them regurgitate or release their fish. However, when the wind shifts, the stench of booby feces, or guano, can be strong, especially if your room is downwind of the nature reserve.
