Margaret Lindgren was out on the bluffs when she saw this huge flock of Brown Pelicans winging their way northward.
Here is a closer look at two adult Brown Pelicans with their white heads.
These birds are being impacted by the oil spill off of Santa Barbara. I saw a photo of one of these beautiful birds completely coated in oil. We must find a way to never let this happen again.
Thanks to Margaret and Ken for allowing me to share their photos with you here. To learn about Margaret's amazing hiking tours here on the coast, here is her website: http://www.unbeatenpathtours.com/. And to see much more of Ken's nature photography, here is his website: http://www.seadreams.org/.
