Weekly Photo Challenge: New

45

From Genovesa.

A new life enters the world; this booby chick is just old enough to be out of the nest, but still has his baby down feathers.  He’s so young I can’t tell what species of booby he is (I’d guess red-footed or Nazca based on the other pictures I took from this area).  As he (or she) grows to become a juvenile, he will molt the down feathers and get his adult coloring.
