A Famous Resident and her Booby Baby

The blue-footed bubi/booby is one of the most well-known birds on the Galapagos Islands. This three pound seafarer is clumsy on land and was named the "bubi" because it means "clown" or "stupid" in Spanish. I think a kinder word would have been a nicer name for this unusual bird. Do you agree? I like kind words!
