Some of the Pelicans were nesting at the base of Castle Pinkney. The fallen bricks weren’t a deterrent.
On another side of the castle the remnants of a pier had been reinforced with stone, also not a deterrent to the nesting birds.
A few other birds, including some Snowy Egrets were also using this rookery.
The chick in the center of this image has started to change color from the all white at hatching to brown.
Another view near the pilings.
