Several people from our Nature Festival have reported and photographed
the brown booby at the St. Augustine Fishing Pier. I went out there today at
5pm and the bird can be located on the pier (50 cents entry) as it sits with
the pelicans waiting to be fed by the fishermen. There is some sort of white
storage building on the pier and the bird seems to enjoy sitting beside it.
Some of the photographers have seen it at sunrise around 6AM or so on the
pier. This bird is very tame and you can approach it very closely. It seems to
be well and in good health. I would recommend early morning and late
afternoon to see this bird.
