This morning over at the marsh pond, we were surprised and treated to a visit by an American White Pelican! Earlier in the month we had a good size group of these big white birds visit the pond but today there was just this one. The pelican floated around in the pond for about an hour before finally flying off to it’s next destination.
In the flight photo you can see how impressive the wing span is of the white pelican. In the United States, it’s second only to the California Condor in terms of wing size.
We are hoping that this bird returns soon and brings along a bunch of friends!
