Royal Tern Rookery

I visited this Royal Tern rookery on the small islands just off the coast of North Carolina. Photographing so many birds nesting on the ground and all in just one small area, the noise stops any talking and the smell………well you can just imagine.

There several things that a visitor/photographer MUST adhere to when visiting such a large bird rookery……

WATCH YOUR STEP…..Those are eggs on the ground everywhere!

WEAR A HAT!

It will feel like its raining but its NOT water, trust me. Don’t look UP! These guys were not that bad….you should see Pelicans!

Try to keep your equipment covered like its raining water.

Take lots of clean towels for the boat ride home!
