Portsmouth Island Trip

A Trip To Portsmouth Island, North Carolina

On the trip back to Ocracoke, we passed an island that was one of the first in the Outer Banks to host the return of pelicans in the 80s as DDT finally disappeared from the ecosystem. So the Portsmouth trip turned out to be something of a bust bird photography-wise, but it was still an interesting trip to a deserted island on the Atlantic coast and part of the Outer Banks.
