Pelican Watch--er--Skywatch Friday

I lucked out this morning seeing some of the American White Pelicans that make the Yakima River their home from mid-March to sometime in the fall. When I was commuting regularly, I rarely saw them. They didn't get up as early as I did.
You can clearly see the bump on the pelican's bill. I blogged about that last year.
To see what is in the skies around the world this week visit the Skywatch site.

Wonderful capture. It has been years since I have seen white pelicans. I spend time in SW florida, where there are many many many of their brown cousins. Nice shot!

I don't recall seeing white pelicans. Great capture for SWFriday.

By the way, we're skywatch neighbors. We're #197

I havve never seen them in flight so it was a nice pleasure to view them this way.
