The Brown Booby breeds on islands and coasts in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans including the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea.

Brown Boobies are spectacular divers, plunging into the ocean at high speed. They mostly eat small fish or squid that gather in groups near the surface. They also catch leaping fish while skimming the surface.
