Birdwatching on North Seymour Island, Galapagos


Magnificent frigatebirds inflate their red chests. The bigger and brighter the better as they seek to attract a mate. And no other island in the world has a bigger colony.

Thousands of these frigatebirds nest and you walk alongside their puffed-up chests. Blue-footed boobies also dominate the trails, their feet a sharp contrast to fluffy white hatchlings. Massive land and marine iguanas wander past and your proximity to wildlife will be surreal. 

For many Galapagos guides, North Seymour is the most important place in the archipelago. To see so many rare birds in one place is remarkable.
