Shore Birds

They gather here - on the other side of the posts with "No Trespassing Beyond This Point".
Brown Pelicans in flight.
Not quite as synchronized as before...
Soaring overhead!
Gulls gather...
And away they go...
 

Linking to The Bird D'Pot and Wild Bird Wednesday.  Thanks to our hosts for providing a place to show off our birds!

I think your last gull is a tern!

Great post - I loved see Brown Pelicans when I was in the states - we have a different species here.

Cheers - Stewart M

Loved the Pelican flying Linda, I've always wanted to get one but have never had any luck, you've inspired me to try harder!!

We seldom get the pellicans here unless they are lost or blown in on a storm, great series of shots on the shorebirds, one of my favorites. Nice flying shots also. cheers.

This post takes me back to my visit to Del Mar a few years ago.

First time I saw these birds in the flesh. Great photos to inspire a few great memories. Thank You.
