Fort Amsterdam near Philipsburg, St. Maarten

One flew over the pelican's nest. Am a big fan of birds, pelicans included. This one is a brown pelican, the national bird of St. Maarten, circling over a nest of them atop 17th century Fort Amsterdam at the turn-around point of our morning cycling tour. Got our fill of both bird and island lore from Barend our Tri-Sport guide. Much harder than capturing the history of this island was capturing a decent shot of pelicans in flight. Every time my discreet iPhone camera came out for a shot, they all settled down for a nap. #ad #ChoiceCaribbean via Instagram http://ift.tt/1Z8Cajb
