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.
This cormorant poses nicely near a lagoon in the park.
These guys were busy vibrating their necks.
This little Heron stood perfectly still for several minutes. Not sure exactly what Heron family this guy belongs to…a Green Heron?

The San Diego Safari Park is located in Escondido about 40 minutes north of downtown San Diego.
Travel safe. Have fun.
