PSA - Don't make someone else's day crappy
Island PSA - As locals, we love to see people enjoying the island and having fun. Just remember if you want to feed the birds. Please, please, please safely distance yourself from others. When the birds get excited they lose control of important functions. Thank You and have a blessed day.
