  1. Love watching these charming thieves. My first sighting was in the Galapagos Islands when GF & I joined a cruse commemorating Darwin’s 200th birthday, the single greatest idea anyone ever had. Subsequently I’ve watched them on Mexico’s Pacific coast up to Mazatlan.

    • I didn’t even know that they were easily seen in any area. My experience with them prior to Ecuador were small silhouettes high in the sky. I was told that they only ate far out at sea and never landed on the ground. Obviously, I was told wrong!
