The Booby/Pelican Show

At Magen's Baby Beach there was a incredible show of feeding Brown Pelicans and Brown Boobies as well as Royal and Sandwich Terns. A lone Common Tern (or Arctic, ID is TBD), looked on from a swim buoy. The Boobies hit the water like darts, catching fish with pinpoint accuracy. On the other hand the Pelicans are clumsy and seem to take a "Blue Whale" method of feeding; just open your huge mouth and swallow as much as possible!
