Henderson Island Videos - birds, isolation, and trash

Our tour starts with trash...

and moves on to birds. We come across a Blue Footed Booby. These tropical birds got their name because when English Sailors came up to them they showed no fear of humans, making an easy catch. Many a booby ended up in the pot. 

We can't seem to escape the presence of trash on this isolated beach. 

Plastic is for the birds, literally. 

We also managed to husk some coconuts. 

Toby scaled a tree. 

Ultimately, Henderson Island was amazing.
