On our trip to Baja California, Nan & I saw lots of birds. Here are some of the ones I call the usual suspects (at least for Merritt Island Shoot participants).

Yellow-crowned Night Heron:

That frigatebird is a super catch. Saw couple of those a couple years ago over at port canaveral. Never seen them since.
I wonder if the pelicans are in breeding color Bob. They are pretty.

Hi Gale,

Yes those are the breeding colors for the Pelicans on the west coast. They are redder and brighter than the breeding colors on the east coast, but both are the same species.
