Safari Park Birds

IMG_3077 A rare Pink Backed Pelican opens wide at San Diego's Safari Park, part of the world famous San Diego Zoo.  Faithful readers of Kongo's blog will recall that the monkey has an affinity for waterfowl of all types and there were some great birds to see yesterday at the Safari Park.


This group of Pink Backed Pelicans attracted lots of bird gawkers.
