I’ve been trying for awhile now to get a decent picture of a pelican in flight. Today, I hit the jackpot. My mom and I were lingering at one of their favorite sloughs in the Baylands and the entire pelican community seemed to fly in within the span of about an hour. When we arrived, there were a couple of birds preening, but by the time we left there were about 60-70 pelicans. I am not exaggerating. We counted them! So, lucky me, I got more than just one decent picture. I liked this one with Stanford’s Hoover Tower in the background.
