Birds on my Birthday in Newport

Western Meadowlark
The state bird - you would think this bird would be easier to find. We did not expect to see it at the coast. This is the bird that caused Chuck to get his hand caught in the car door. He was excited to see the bird and did not want to make noise shutting the car door and used his hand to quiet the noise (really it was the wind caught it too quickly).

Brown Pelicans
These pelicans were resting in the Yaquina Bay area.

I might have seen this bird before, but this is the first time actually identifying one.
