Outer Banks Pelicans

Hubby and I arrived home yesterday after spending three and half days in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. My first time there and I loved it, the waves were wild and rough but the skies were a pretty blue. The road (route 12) was closed earlier due to high water in many places. Once they opened the road we were able to drive all the way down to Cape Hatteras.
We saw a lot of brown pelicans and I loved watching the pelicans as they flew all around us. Pea Island is a great place for birding.

  3. Oh I LOVE Cape Hatteras. We spent two summer vacations in Buxton. No crowds - just sun and sand.

    Pelicans are one of my fave birds ... I don't get to see them often enough!

  18. Your pelicans are so different from ours. Ours have black and white plumage and yellow and bl=ue markings on their bills.

    A soothing post.

Hello, Thanks for stopping by my blog. This is my blog about the birds I see, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. They might not always be the best of photos because I like to keep photos as a record of where and when I see them.
I appreciate all your comments and I will always try to return the favor and visit your blog.

Due to some recent problems I will not be able to publish any comments that include a link. I would appreciate if you do not include any kind of links in your comments. Sorry!
Have a great day, Eileen
