Brown Pelican

With things being a little slow inland, I decided to take another trip to the coast. This time my daughter and I visited Fort Stevens State Park with the target being the South Jetty. I was hoping to see some migrant shore birds. That turned out to be a bust other than a couple of Black-bellied Plovers.
The day was far from a disappointment however as the shore was filled with Gulls, Terns, Pelicans and even a Sea Lion.
While I had seen Brown Pelicans for the first time during the last trip to the coast, this trip was exceptional. There must have been at least a hundred Pelicans flying up and down the jetty.
