Like other boobies, the Brown Booby
(Sula leucogaster) feeds mainly on flying fish and squid.
However, it does not seem to be as dependent on flying fish as the other
booby species, and regularly includes other kinds of fish in its diet. In this
photo, two Brown Boobies pick food from a fisherman's net. The Brown
Booby has a pan-tropical distribution and usually builds its nest on the
ground on remote oceanic islands. Photo taken on
