American White Pelicans
We're lucky if we see one of these a year in NJ.
These guys are very rarely seen in NJ (but common in Delaware). Here in California, they were so close to shore. Most of these shots are not even cropped.
Neat to see these in CA. I'm so used to seeing them in NJ, where they are endangered.
This is a stunning bird, still in nice breeding plumage too.
