Wings & Waves

I was so happy that there were a few birds out taking it easy on such a pretty day. I don't know what any of these birds are except the sea gulls. The minute I saw the big one it was all I could do not to run over because I knew it would send them flying. (Click on any picture for larger view).

It's a Brown Pelican and, I believe, a Western Gull you have there. Lovely shots!!

Good pictures. Jayne was right on the Pelicans - they are Brown Pelicans - immature ones. Their heads will turn yellowish in time and the dark parts even more so.
For the gulls I'd go with Herring Gulls as ID.
Well done!

Jayne & Klaus - The two of you are great! Thank you for identifying the birds. I would have thought pelicans only had the big pouch under their bills but I guess it does look like my other pics of the pelican. Thank you!

June - So glad you liked them. Thank you!

Nick S - Thank you. I had not seen these at all until recently... or maybe I just had not noticed.
