Pelicans over the valley ~Wild Bird Wednesday~121912
While driving home last Sunday after my trip to the feed store, I saw a flash of white out of the corner of my eye. Knowing that it wasn't an eagle, I pulled over and grabbed my camera for a closer look. It was three pelicans! Pelicans over the Anza Valley! Now, that's an unusual sight! I don't know if they got blown in from the Salton Sea or from the Pacific Ocean. They flew in perfect formation, making twists and turns. I just sat and watched them. Fortunately, they were circling overhead and I was able to get some decent photos of them. I drove down another side street, but by then, they decided to move to another spot and I lost them in the clouds. Wild Bird Wednesday for December 19, 2012. Does anybody know what species they are? I have no idea... To visit Wild Bird Wednesday and see other birds, please go to: http://paying-ready-attention-gallery.blogspot.com/
