A glorious day tempted me outside and away from my computer yesterday; with camera and tripod I drove to a nearby area I pass often on the way to a friend's home at Oakden.
What a delight to discover there is more than one lake adjacent to the coffee shop and an abundance of birdlife.
Here a Pelican and Ibis share the area
. . . and here is one section of a lake
This Pelican was doing contortions during its preening process!
while here was one of a multitude of Ibis
The Pelican seems to be admiring himself in the water
. . . and the preening continues (the red reflection is of someone walking by on the adjacent bank)
I so love these giant birds with their unseemly gait on land but graceful flight in the air!
