Our World Tuesday: For the Birds

 This white egret was playing hide-and-seek with me and dad last week at the park.  Eventually, he stepped off the boardwalk and slipped into the grass and went off-the-grid incognito for a few minutes.
 This brown pelican wasn't much worried about who was coming or going that day.  He just sat and sat and sat and sat in the sunshine some more.  So did these two.


This little girl couldn't move them from their relaxation stations, though she tried as she might.  Her grandfather waited about as patiently as the birds as the little girl ran back and forth between the birds.
 
It just went like that for a while as dad and I watched from the car to see who would move off first.  Eventually, the pelican slipped into the water.

On the way out, we spied this seagull making the most of the warmth of the parking lot.   The birds were fearless, acclimatized--and making the most of human inventions as they enjoyed the sunshine of a beautiful winter's day.

  4. Some birds can be so patient with us humans! Then finally tire of us and slip away.

  11. Wonderful that you had so much time to enjoy the pelicans.

    They usually move along pretty quickly when I spot them.
