Re: Red -footed Booby still on board Liberty.

I went and saw the Red-footed Booby tonight as well. I got to the dock around 7:00-7:10 and they were still unloading fish/fisherman were still getting off. Once everyone was off, I walked down the dock and asked if I could go on board to see the booby and was graciously allowed on. Others were already there at that point and around 10 of us were looking at it when I left. Apparently it has spent essentially all of the past four days on or around the boat, day and night. It disappeared for about an hour today to circle other boats but returned to the Liberty. One of the deckhands said it's been fighting off other boobies that try to land/forage near the boat as well.
