I think this is called an “Elegant Tern.” But, all research indicates this bird doesn’t really come to Florida? Breeds and hangs out in California, Mexico, Baja Peninsula…?Β

SAN JOSE, COSTA RICA πŸ‡¨πŸ‡·: BE STILL

When we are stricken and cannot bear our lives any longer, then a tree has something to say to us: Be still! Be still! Look at me! Life is not easy, life is not difficult. Those are childish thoughts. Let God speak within you, and your thoughts will grow silent. You are anxious because your path leads away from mother and home. But every step and every day lead you back again to the mother. Home is neither here nor there. Home is within you, or home is nowhere at all. – Herman Hesse

COCOA BEACH, FLORIDA: A PELICAN CO-OP

At first, I was alarmed at the large congregation of pelicans on the water. I instantly thought they were plotting a 2019 takeover. After some research, it turns out that pelicans fish in cooperative groups. They either form straight, or U-shaped formations (both of which you’ll see within this series) to flap their wings to gather fish in shallow water and then the pelicans take turns leaving the formations to dive in for fish food.
