The new LEGO Pirates fan community at ForbiddenCove.com is certainly inspiring some wonderful pirate-themed LEGO creations lately!

Brick-built creatures populating the desert island include a gull, hummingbird, crabs, and monkey. Note the horns for breakers and the microscale ship in the background, as if off in the distance. Brilliant!
