I'm exhausted . . .

I didn't work today, and after spending the last two days eating and drinking all kinds of good things, I wanted to get some exercise. The girls and I walked 3 miles this morning, then I came home, ate breakfast, and rode my bike down to the Bolsa Chica wetlands to go hiking and birdwatching. With the recent rains, everything was so green and pretty, and I saw a few cool birds and things.
A flock of Canada Geese . . .

A Ground Squirrel . . .

Buffleheads . . .

White Pelicans . . .

A Brown Pelican . . .

P.S. Don't they always make you think of that limerick?

What a wonderful bird is the pelican.
His beak can hold more than his belly can.
He can hold in his beak
Food enough for a week,
But I'll be damned if I know how the hell he can.

Nice catch on all the critters.

I know what you mean about eating and drinking nonstop. I've got one more day of it, then I'm collapsing.
