Hubby and I stopped by the Desert willow golf course yesterday afternoon. The storm that hit our valley for 2 days was moving on and the sky was clearing. I wanted to get out for a walk, and hubby tagged along.
As I was driving by one of the ponds, I noticed something white. At first I though they were cattle egrets. But, we parked the car and quietly approached and it was about a dozen white pelicans. Now, there ARE pelicans down by the Salton Sea, but it is very unusual to see them 25 miles away! We have, however, seen them fly by when we are at Keys Point, Joshua Tree National Park.
Anyway, we approached them and snapped some photos before they heard us and took off.
