Hood Island (Espanola Island)
In the morning we went on an outing to Hood island for a walk on lava/boulder terrain.  Unique sea bird colonies, including the waved albatrosses, Nazca boobies, and blue-footed boobies were among the animals we found on this island. Among its landbirds, the Hood island mockingbird, and three species of Darwin’s finches were also a common highlight. We found marine iguanas, and sea lions right at the landing site.
