Photos of the Brown booby on a buoy and flying above the sea of the Midway Atoll. Brown boobies live mainly by flying fish and squid.

There are almost no Brown Boobies (Sula leucogaster) left on the Midway Atoll. At the moment (2001), there is only one nest on Eastern Island. Brown Boobies usually nest in small colonies of up to a few hundred animals. Their favourite food are flying fish and octopusses. The biggest enemy of the booby and of other ground-breeding sea birds is the human. Already the seamen of earlier centuries - and also the inhabitants of the island - carried off the friendly birds and their eggs without difficulty. Many stocks were severely damaged or even destroyed. Brought in animals had also a devastating effect, because the birds were defenceless against them, as they did not know any enemies living on the ground.
