Josh & I went for a hike in Torrey Pines State Reserve while I was in San Diego earlier this month. It's perched on a gorgeous curve of cliffs, and features a profusion of flowers and migrant seabirds as well as the eponymous - and rare - pine tree.

The pelicans! The pelicans aren't usual present in the numbers that we saw them. We saw hundreds. Usually they breed further south, in Mexico. The speculation is that the fish crop was rather poor in northern Mexico this year, forcing them further up the coast to breed.

Hundreds? Wow! I've seen a dozen at most ... And they never stop to fascinate me (as do the seals): Pelicans have always been a thing of zoos and TV to me, not a bird you see walking along the beach.
