No rain. So we hoofed it out to the ocean, and caught some pelicans, who have been showing up lately in greater numbers, doing their thing.
Here they head for a wave; they glide in the updraft created right in front of the wave.
Here the wave is starting to break up on them and they head over it towards the next wave.
There they go! Over the Wave…
Off towards the next one. Just beginning to take shape and always following the leader bird.
I have been concerned about this egret–I am pretty sure it’s an egret thought not snowy or not yet snowy–since it has been hanging out a lot all by itself next to the golf course. I thought possibly it was injured. But today I saw it in flight, so maybe it’s ok. They walk with great delicacy.
