2009_01_01 Pelicans take over Santa Barbara
Gulls were the birds that long ruled Santa Barbara's waterfront, especially its wharf and harbor. Now, it seems, California Brown Pelicans have replaced them. Or so it appeared on a New Years morning as we walked around the harbor from the wharf to the end of the breakwater and back. I might be wrong, but it looks to me like these birds have completed their comeback.
