Galapagos Birds

One of the four frigate birds which cruised with us, riding the air currents created by the boat, all the way from Bartoleme to Baltra.

Travel Dates 15th-19th April 2010.

What an extraordinary place.

My camera is only 6.3 megapixels and each photo takes up about 1.4 megabytes. I filled a 1GB card and part of a 512MB card with over 750 photographs in the Galapagos.

I can't upload all those photos so the next half-dozen blog posts will be just a few photos representing each of the major species I saw on the varous islands – land and marine iguanas, land and marine tortoises, sealions, birds and fish. I will follow those with a description of my visit.

More Frigate Birds.

A few of the famous Darwin Finches and a Galapagos Heron.

Swallow-tailed Gulls on the Plaza Islands.

A flightless cormorant and some brown Pelicans.

Blue-footed boobies.

Penguins on sea and land.

Flamingoes in an inland pool in the lava and Galapagos Hawks, one of the few land predators.

Cheers, Alan
