Are these supposed to be the same bird?  The first one is a Brown Pelican, apparently either into aerobatics or with major inner ear problems  :classic_biggrin:.  The second looks like a grackle, possibly Boat-Tailed; wait for confirmation, please.

Yes the second is a Grackle.  I think Great-tailed would be more expected there over Boat-tailed as they are more of strictly coastal bird. 

My mistake.  I assumed 'John Paul Landing' was a boat landing on the coast named after John Paul, not a complete name.  Having Googled the location and finding it inland, and not too far from where I saw Great-Taileds myself several years agon, I agree with @birdbrain22
