Heron vs. Pelican: Fight!

My regular commute route goes past the evaporating ponds near the Dumbarton Bridge, and many seabirds hang out there. This morning, the birds were arranged in a way I'd never seen before. Standing in a long row along the shore were a bunch of herons, and just off shore, facing them and thrashing the water, were a bunch of pelicans. At this point, in my head I heard fingers snapping and music from West Side Story, as I visualized this big showdown between the Heron and Pelican gangs.

Obviously, my commute is too boring.
