Is that OK with everybody? OK, let's get to the photos.
Apparently, when Mom and her friend pulled in and parked, Mom jumped out of the car right away and ran down to the water. Why? Because she saw this guy swimming by:
|American White Pelican|
You know, since that's what she was hoping to get to photograph, you'd think she could have just come back home to me and Zim ...
Mom and her friend went into those cool woods Zim showed you the other day, in search of other birdies. They didn't find the ones they were looking for, but they did see this little guy:
Yep. The Bluebird of Happiness! So ... they turned to head back the other way and Mom stopped to take another shot:
Umm ... is it just me, or are those not birds? In fact, they look an awful lot like Border Collies to me! Hmm ...
Moving right along ...
Mom and her friend moved down to another area and were thrilled to see this guy:
|Great Blue Heron|
Isn't he cool? Let's just sit back and look at some of the pix Mom snapped of him:
|♩"... Wade in the water ..." ♫|
OK... sorry. Shh!
He posed for a while, then flew off -
Speaking of flying ... here's a pelican in flight!
They got as close as they could to the secret Pelican hangout. Or something like that.
The pelicans share that area with some gulls.
Let's go in for a close-up!
There was one pelican off to one side, just hanging with the gulls. Check them out:
Zim and I like the gull in the center of this next shot:
The one in the water, to the left of the log. He looks like he's cracking up over a joke somegull just told him!
Back to that one pelican! Here he is with his (wait for it...)
|A pelican and his ... gull friend|
... his gull friend. Ha woo. Get it?
I don't think other gulls would mess with that gull while the pelican is around!
Here they are again:
|"I ❤ my gull-friend!"|
That's all I've got for you today. Tune back in tomorrow to the Army of Birds Digest to see more birdies!
Have a serene Sunday, everyone!
