Yakima Valley's Pelicans

I had a lucky day driving on I-82 along the Yakima River one day last week. My timing was just right to catch a good shot of some of the American White Pelicans who make the river their home from about Mrch through October each year. When I was commuting early in the morning daily, I rarely saw them, as they are usually in flight later in the morning.

Very good. It's so hard to catch these birds in flight. I'm not sure I've ever seen a white pelican...all of ours are of a brown variety...

Aren't they distinctive? Apart from in a zoo, I've never seen a pelican either.
