Bird of the Month - February 2021

Brown Pelicans ( Pelecanus occidentalis) are one of the most common birds you will see on Bald Head Island, whether they are hanging out on dock posts or gliding gracefully on the ocean surface. Brown Pelicans have an extraordinary way of getting food. These birds dive for their food and during their dives, they tuck and rotate their bodies to make themselves into torpedoes creating huge splashes. Make sure to check out these epic displays while out on the beach!

Every month we are highlighting a bird species that can be found on Bald Head Island. Through our partnership with Lew Wilson Art, new prints and ornaments that showcase the featured bird are available to purchase monthly. A portion of proceeds will help to benefit our mission. Collect all 12 of the birds, and receive a free print of the collection from Lew Wilson Art at the end of the year! To purchase this month's artwork, visit:
