Blue-footed boobies are turning up in Point Reyes after straying far from their normal range from the Galapagos Islands to the Sea of Cortez. The boobies, which are causing quite a stir among local birders, may be arriving on Northern California shores because of a collapse in their food supplies in Mexico. They were last seen in the Bay Area in 1971.
