    Kay, this sounds like a great day outing!! I was impressed with how visitors are brought ashore! Great bird photos and information on the efforts to protect them on their isolated little outcrop.

    Bravo for the warblers! I sure enjoyed these pages and seeing all the birds, especially the whitetailed tropicbirds. It must be exciting to be able to photograph these birds, especially the rare ones.

    Another wonderful nature page. I especially loved the pics of the Fairy Tern, Brown Noddies and the Baby Tropicbird. Awesome Kay. Also thanks for stopping by my Mount Pleasant page.

    How did you capture the photos of so many different birds, Kay? I'm sure it required alot of patience and leg work!! Another page well presented...
