... and that's one of the few reasons I will get myself up at 0-dark-thirty... to get into position to get some bird pictures when the first morning light hits the rocky point where they hang out.

A Pelican coming in for a landing
... just sittin' on the rocks
When they're preening and grooming, they sometimes do one of these stretches
A seagull cruising by
A cormorant bringing some nesting material back home
