Monday Photo Shoot - "On The Wing"

This from John Scalzi:

"Your Monday Photo Shoot: Get a shot of one of our fine feathered friends (preferably undomesticated). "

Well, I went on a ride this morning hoping to perhaps see some wild turkeys, or an eagle, down by the Missouri River.  I did see a dove, but not close enough to photograph.  And I saw a couple of racoons high in a tree, either fighting or making love (with animals, who can tell?).  But the only birds I got near enough to take pictures of from horseback were some funny-looking ducks down the road from my house... and they're domesticated.

However, I happened to remember my February trip to South Padre Island, so that saved the day.  Seagulls on the sand, and pelicans flying overhead.

Very good picture of those seagulls and pelicans.  I've never seen a real pelican. Those funny looking ducks you took a picture of are called muscovy. http://www.ansi.okstate.edu/poultry/ducks/muscovy/  
There used to be a lot of black & white ones where we had our camper. They do get pretty large. Helen
