On our first day in Moss Landing, driving over Jetty Road, I saw a band of White Pelicans standing in Elkhorn Slough. They were the first white ones I ever saw, and the rest of the time that we were in the Salinas area, there were only Brown Pelicans visible.

Brown Pelicans flew almost all the time above us, in squadrons or solo. They were at Moss Landing, Garrapata State Park, and all along that windy road down the coast to McWay Falls.
