Boaters Get Glimpse Of Rare ‘Booby’ Bird In Boston Harbor

BOSTON (CBS) – Some whale watchers got to witness a rare sight in Boston Harbor this week that had nothing to do with whales.

A female Brown Booby hitched a ride on a Boston Harbor Cruises’ Whale Watch boat, the Asteria.

The Brown Booby is a tropical bird that’s typically found in the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico, but is rarely seen in New England.

The birds’ wingspans can measure up to five feet.
