You take the coolest pictures ever! I did not notice the carp at first. I had to smile when I saw the oriole eating your cherries! Where was the white pelican photo taken?? Such a huge, majestic bird, aren't they? I have only seen them a few times, always in Florida.

Although the pelicans, white Egrits and terns have just started to settle into Michigan over the past few years...
This particular one was taken while traveling in the Caribbean. The locals were just not co operating.....

There are usually about five in this nest but I think some have fledged already. The parents didn't even come to harass me when I got this close as they have other times. I hope they haven't become Peregrine food!

Thank you... I was wrong in both of my guesses.
I was focusing on the lighter striping on their faces...

Is there an online guide that shows BOTH the male and females of the species SIDE BY SIDE.
The sight I use doesn't show that unless you open it up to view the range, females etc...
It would be much easier if male and females were right up front for comparison as many of the brown females look so similar.
