This was really cool to see.  Something had caught the pelicans attention, and all of them stood up and formed these lines.

Lisa, great pic!  Pelicans feed in formation, too.  It's like a ballet.

Thanks, STL, I did not know that about their feeding. 

Ginger posted on explore that, a human with a boat and dogs were in the area when they did this.  I didn't see the boat, but others did, but I did hear the dogs barking.

Lisa & Ginger, I have seen and heard boats in recent days also.  Looks like the flat-bottom kind that people fishing or hunting use in shallow water.

Lots of color at the Flyway at dawn today.

I saw this link posted this morning on the Explore chat board.  The person who posted it said that a mod or cam op had posted it about a month ago.  It might help with ID'ing some of the birds seen on the Flyway.

Ginger, thanks very much for the link to birds of the Flyway.  Yes, very helpful!   I found a mistaken label on one of my recent photos -- the American white pelicans are correct, but the black birds perching with them are double-crested cormorants, not mergansers.  Will find and rename that photo.

You're welcome, STL.  I know that I need all the help I can get on the Flyway bird ID's.

Beautiful pics from yesterday, Lisa .  I especially love the one of the BE taking off.
