Big birds

Took a back way to town this morning in hopes of catching some bird life. I wasn't disappointed. One of the lakes along the Winger road was filled with white birds. There were at least a dozen swans, and then some pelicans showed up. They made a low pass in perfect formation over the swans before rising up to a higher altitude to circle.

The swans were going through some sort of rituals, bobbing their head up and down, flapping their wings, and occasionally getting into a little scuffle.
