Birds at Wilson Dam

Saturday afternoon, we stopped at Wilson Dam, wondering if we could see some white pelicans.

Because of all the rain we have had, several spillways were open, churning up the water beneath, and the birds were loving it.

There were many birds fishing, and lots resting on the rocks below the dam.

The white pelicans were everywhere. They are beautiful birds, and we are happy that they have decided to make our area their home. 

We were at the Visitor Center, a long way from the dam. I was concentrating on getting a close-up shot of this pelican when Hub told me to look up. A bald eagle was soaring right over us.  Needless to say, he was gone before I could get the camera focused.  I'll keep trying.
