Weekly Photo Challenge: Gatherings

One is tempted to submit a picture or two of a family gathering in honor of the holiday season for this challenge, but I will stickĀ  with a different and perhaps more conventional interpretation of the theme.

These pictures are from our visit to La Langue de Barbarie near St. Louis in Senegal.

Here is a colony of seagulls.

Here is a flight of cormorants.

Finally, here is a squadron of pelicans.

I submit that these pictures of gatherings of birds fits the theme for the week.
