Pelican Patrol Over Viña del Mar, Chile

The Roca Oceanica is located just north of Chile’s UNESCO World Heritage Site of Valparaiso. From its craggy slopes we saw this amazing flight of pelicans against the backdrop of the dramatic Dunas De Concón. Our local guide, Antonio, told us they were the whole Chilean Air Force. I’m not sure I believe him!
