Kongo fetched his new Christmas tripod and headed over to nearby Santee Lakes to see what birds were out and about this beautiful San Diego afternoon.  He came across this white pelican sitting on the grass and was able to get close.  Evidently pelicans don’t mind monkeys.

This trio of two cormorants on either side of a gull stayed on the same rock for nearly two hours.   They must have had something in common.
