This has been a summer of birds. We've never seen Pelicans here before (doesn't mean they haven't been here - we just haven't seen them). So off we went to March Point (near Anacortes) and got some photos - though the Pelicans were far far out in the bay on a tiny island. It was a thrill anyway.
They are out on that island - this is without any zoom - so you get an idea of how far out they were.
This was a close as I could get them - they seem to have some seagull friends visiting
And some Caspian Terns too
One day we were sitting on our deck in Bellingham and we saw some large birds flying over towards Lake Whatcom. I rushed indoors to get my camera and this was all I captured of the flock of about 30. I never thought to turn on the video - that would have been more fun - but at least I got these as they whirled around in a mass, all the time moving towards the lake.
