Photos of Yabu bird island

Here are some pictures of the lovely little island Yabu that is home to a few thousand red-footed boobies and frigate birds!

Yabu bird island

Just north of Ono lies a tiny islet that is traditionally "tabu" (meaning taboo: locals told us that nobody is allowed ashore to protect the seabird colonies) and on top of that an officially recognised wildlife sanctuary! We anchored close to the island to observe the birds, but did not go ashore.
