Pelican Portrait

Today we visited the fishing pier in San Clemente, CA. The Brown Pelicans were very acclimated to people. Get too close to them and get pecked at. Those are big birds, with big bills, so that's an experience to be avoided!

There were more pigeons than Western Gulls. We also saw a Double Crested Cormorant feeding.

Southern California is still reeling from all the rain. The MetroLink/Amtrak railroad track appeared closed as a barrier was being built to hold back further slides.
