The Blue-Footed Booby

     The blue footed booby is an intriguing bird, I think.  With its blue, webbed feet and its high-stepping ways, this tropical seabird is unlike any other. 

     I am posting here link to a short, informative article about this unusual bird, along with photos and a short video.  The piece was created by Loduskia (Dusky) Pierce for her website  

     I encourage you to enjoy not just Dusky’s piece about the blue footed booby, but to explore her website as  well. is devoted to experiencing wonder at our amazing planet and its inhabitants.  A  psychotherapist, Dusky cites brain research which shows that the experiences of wonder and appreciation are good for us.  The more we purposely tune in to moments of positive experience, she explains on her site, the easier it becomes to notice them because we have literally made changes in our brain circuitry.  Enjoy.–April Moore
