pelicans

One evening at Cannon Beach last month we saw this group of pelicans materialize out of the fog. It was almost like a dream; I'd never seen anything like it before. Have you ever seen pelicans?

oh wow! i grew up in oregon and spent a lot of time on the coast and have never ever seen pelicans there! in fact, i didn't even know there were pelicans on the oregon coast!! very cool.

and you know...how terrible is this...i am not sure if i have ever seen pelicans or not. gosh, my memory is rotten! perhaps at a zoo? perhaps just in books? the idea is not completely alien, but i'm having difficulty pulling up a specific memory.

I wonder if this is some sort of sign. I love pelicans.
Happy memories seeing them fishing with my Dad in Florida. He loves feeding them, for that matter, he loves feeding all animals.

Lots of pelicans on the east coast too. We have seen several of them on Hilton Head Island, and in the Sullivan Island low country areas. Even at Virginia Beach. Love them and have been a big fan of your blog for a while. Beautiful pictures!!

Those aren't pelicans they are prehistoric WOW!!! I've seen lots in FL but could that be a sign that your waters are getting warmer or are those birds seriously off course? Very Very Very interesting!

'Oh' wow how bizarre does that look - though probably not I guess.

Pelicans, puffins and tucans are all dream like, I find.

I grew up seeing them all along the Gulf Coast. From an early age we knew that rhyme: "Consider the marvelous pelican, His beak can hold more than his belly can."

I have not, in fact, ever seen pelicans! They are eerie, though, and the pics remind me of something out of all of my fairy tales.
