Ventura, CA; Feb 2012

Birds photographed (mostly) at Goleta Beach, just north of Santa Barbara, Feb 2012.

The first 16 represent a sequence - about 20 seconds; the pelican is making some points, and the egret is not impressed.

There are two I cannot figure out (What's it #1 and #2); can you help? [IDs supplied by Mike Sefton and Bruce Bowman).

Most of the others are sunset shots from Goleta Beach, except the Snowy Plover, from Oxnard.
