BirdWatching In the San Francisco Bay Area
Bird Bath - Brown Pelicans Enjoy the Rodeo Beach Lagoon.

This piece was taped a week or so after the Cosco Busan Oil Spill which had a huge effect on the marine ecosystem in the San Francisco Bay and surrounding Pacific Ocean. These Pelican were enjoying a morning bath just after sunrise. The oil spill workers clad in hazmut suits were cleaning Rodeo Beach in the background. The only correlation between these Pelicans and those oil spill cleaners in the Hazmut suits is that during the oil spill there seemed to be confusion
on which bird was named what. So I set out to ID a few of the birds that will be in subsequential videos.
