More pelicans and other stuff at Safety Harbor

My first common loon of the season. He was floating all alone far off the fishing pier.

I was surprised to see manatees at the fishing pier. Usually this time of year they all head over to the electricity plant to swim in the warm water around the plant. Since the weather here has still been warm, I guess they are hanging around longer. There were at least 6 manatees at the fishing pier.

The trees around the parking lot were full of starlings. They were very loud.

More pelican fun. They have such amazing color on their faces. With that pink and blue around the eyes and bright orange beaks.

He looked happy with his fish part.

This one is a juvenile. Maybe not a year old and hasn’t got his color yet.

Another one enjoying his prize.

“Gulp!”

Just a few more things I saw at the Safety Harbor fishing pier.

  1. Great shots of such an amazing looking bird – especially the group one with those very orange beaks! One flew right over my head a couple of days ago! Thank you for sharing them on Mandarin Orange Monday:)
