Someone hollered, "Look!" We looked out the window and there were Franklin's Gulls flying over the playground and a couple were right by the window. We raced outside and watched them swooping around. It was exciting! Those gulls have black heads and pinkish bellies.
Then as we were about to go into the classroom someone spotted a huge flock of birds in the distance. They thought it was a flock of Sandhill Cranes, but after we used binoculars we realized that they were American White Pelicans soaring over Armour. They kids were shouting, "Life bird!" They were so excited!
