Sad to say, but I just returned from driving on the beach at Fort Fisher and came across three dead sea birds washed on shore. Two were pelicans and I'm not sure about the third one (the last photo). When you consider what happened last week at Topsail, it makes you wonder what is happening here.
I contacted the Fort Fisher Ranger office, and as I was leaving, a Ranger was headed out to investigate the deaths. Based on the number of birds washed up, it does make you question whether these deaths were intentionally caused.
This was a disappointing way to end an otherwise wonderful day at Fort Fisher.
Note: Various groups are offering rewards for information leading to the identification of those responsible for the Topsail Beach bird deaths.
