This morning I took the girls over to Landa Park for a couple of hours. We were walking along the Comal River, watching the dozens upon dozens of ducks and geese swimming in the chilly spring waters, not to mention a half-dozen nutria and some very bright red crawfish. One bright white bird was particularly impressive because of its enormous size. I thought to myself, "That's one big goose." White with black wing feathers... and then I realized it had a long yellow beak with a throat-pouch.

There was a white pelican swimming with the ducks and geese, just as happy as could be, more than 200 miles from the coast. Wow. Amazing the things one sees when the camera's at home.
