Another Hawk and some Pelicans


These guys are stalking my dog and since they are mostly young ones their nest site must be near. On a brighter note snapped some shots of these pelicans on the beach. You can click on the pictures for much larger images. 🙂

  3. My observation: there must be some law of nature which decrees that every post must have an occupant – pelican, gull or other seabird. If a post is vacated, then another bird must occupy within the required maximum time. That’s my theory and I’m sticking to it!

  5. Great shots, Elizabeth. How small is your doggie? (Notice I refrained from saying: “Bloody hawks”! I’m far too decent to say that.)

  12. I love the photos especially the pelicans😊😉…eonder why they perch themselves like that? I see them everyday (when Im on the road)and if they’re not on the jetty they are up high sitting on the light poles… amazing birds!
