Isla Isabel

On our way to San Blas we stopped at Isla Isabel which is a Unesco Bird Sanctuary. We enjoyed the unspoiled character of the island and the way the birds were unafraid of humans.

By moving slowly we were able to get quite close to these blue footed boobies.

There was a raised patio area where we could observe the frigates on their nest sites from above. This male frigate bird is puffing up his throat to attract a female. It was nesting season, so we noticed many frigates carrying twigs and grass up to the trees to build their nests.

I found a nice website about the island that includes a great video. I hope you enjoy it. Isla Isabel adventure.
