Caught up with all the missed bird photography on the last day of 2018.

Some images from a bird sanctuary / Heronry. Apparently, the pelicans here are wary of the abundance of crocs in these waters and scoop water on the wing. This gave us plenty of action images

Hayath they are amazing and impressive.
Gave me a laugh too, but not at the expense of the excellence of the images.

I've always seen Pelicans as bits of clowns and yet these raise the bar in that area.
Curious, why scoop water? Is it their fishing tactic?

Love that one with the crocodile, alligator? I assume that sort of scene is not uncommon.
I notice there is quite a concentration in the birds face and eyes.

All very nice

Edit - Oh! you asked for C&C - any more much appreciated thanks.

Pelicans sure are goofy, all the more when they walk on land. The constant bickering and territorial displays make them good subjects.
