Abbott’s Booby is an oceanic bird which is now found only on Christmas Island.
They ride the air currents and can feed and forage for 1000’s of kilometres and days, and then to return home to the rainforest to nest, birth and raise their single chick.
Abbott’s Booby is an ancient species and holds the knowledge of navigation. They have both a sense of freedom but chooses time and time again to return home, and are attached to a particular nest and site.
Abbott’s Booby teaches you about ‘returning’, coming back to who you really are, to your sense of home and where you hold your ancient knowledge. She allows you freedom to explore, to forage, to feed your desires yet calls you back home time and again, in order to integrate your knowledge and connect with your sense of self and home.
Dr Janos Hennicke in an Australian Geographic documentary describes Abbott’s Booby – “When you look in their eyes, they have a secret, that they know something of the world we don’t know.“
