A Brown Pelican was first spotted fishing in our creek a couple of weeks ago, but I missed it. Today I came home from grocery shopping and it was right off our dock! Beautiful, breeding-plumage bird, but you can hardly tell from this photo. The bird is below the left-hand tree, if you can't spot it right away.
The Laughing Gulls harassed it until it flew away, but I saw it do one dive before that happened. Didn't have time to digiscope it, but seeing this bird made my day!
