Boobies are large, conspicuous seabirds with cigar-shaped bodies, long dagger-shaped bills and, in flight, long pointed wings and characteristic wedge-shaped tails.  They have short legs but large webbed feet which are used during courtship.  
Both sexes of the Blue-footed Booby are alike, although females have a pigmented area around their iris, which makes their pupil appear larger.  During courtship, the birds lift their feet and wave them in the air.
