FAMILIAR FACES IN GALAPAGOS

This is an out-boarding Brown Pelican, same species familiar to American birds on Pacific and Atlantic Coasts.

The American Oystercatcher, an eastern bird in the U.S.  Here it’s right at home in the Pacific…on the Equator.

Flamingoes feeding in brackish pond on Isabella Island.  There aren’t many in the Galapagos but it is a self-sustaining, year-round breeding population.  I first saw this bird in Spain.
