Quick Update on Pelicans

This past week was absolutely fantastic for pelican watching. Lots of interactions, some very good play activity, fights, baths, and flights. On Saturday I was out on the dock at Sunset Bay for about three hours. Most of that time K was with me, and together we saw about sixty pelicans drop out of the sky and land in the water in front of us throughout the afternoon.

I have a ton of pics to go through, and I want to make some non-pelican posts first, but hopefully I won’t take too long to get to the good pelican stuff.
