B is for Birds

Port Arthur Pelicans to be more exact. This is low tide. They are sitting on a sandbar well offshore from Port Arthur, as you can likely see. We went aground on a sandbar much like this earlier in the day. The whole bay was hardly more than ten feet deep at most, and much shallower when the tide went out.

This was part of a project we did with Native Watercraft. Jimbo Meador was the host for a three part DVD we did featuring Native Watercraft-certified guides. Port Arthur was one of the locations we visited. Quite the adventure. Speckled trout and redfish were very nice to us this day.

Pelicans are such fascinating birds. I've seen documentaries about them, but I don't think I've ever encountered one in real life. What a treat it must have been to be part of that project.

Lovely photos. I enjoy taking photos of everything, but especially wildlife.

I love the long, orange bills of the pelicans. Nice shot. Best of luck with the A to Z Challenge. Cheers!
