The ReturnPosted: October 31, 2016
While working knee deep in the middle of an overgrown bed, shadows came over me.
I looked up and saw a large flock of American While Pelicans. They have returned to the area to spend the winter. Of course, I only had my phone to snap some photos and there were many more birds in the sky than I was able to photograph. Typically, they seems to take a morning fly to stretch their wings, but usually only a few are in the flocks.
The American White Pelican breeds in fresh water lakes in the Northern Great Plains and returns to the Gulf Coast in the winter to enjoy the warm water.
