Pelicans flying in formation

Here is another view of a flock of pelicans flying up the beach past our condo. One of the unusual aspects of pelicans is that not only do the fly in formation, but they seem to flap their wings in synchronization with each other. As you see in this photo, this entire group has their wings in the same position.

Today is Sunday, so we have posted new photos on Viva la Voyage. We are following up last week's photos of Christmas in Vienna with some additional photos of Vienna. We hope you find them of interest.

I wasn't aware of the synchronization.

cool formation. i like sitting on the patio at the langosta condo and being surprised as they fly by right in front of me at eye level. that is an awesome experience.

A Happy New year to you and your family!
