White Pelicans

White Pelicans were seen on Freedom Pointe lake, which is the size of a very large pond, this afternoon.  It looks as though a lot of molting is going on, doesn’t it?  Those are white feathers all over the ground.  There is usually a big gathering every winter of these younger White Pelicans at this particular lake.

The pelicans had a few Double-crested Cormorants, some Seagulls, a few White Ibis, and a lone Snowy Egret along with them today.  I also noticed a pair of Egyptian Geese on the very far shore (not photographed).  This spot is usually a good place to view the pelicans in Jan. and Feb.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!

  1. It’s either a rock concert or a political convention, compete I imagine, with lots of loud noises and commotion.

    • Hi Montucky, Imaginative thought. I had never seen that before but between all the big white birds such as pelicans, egrets, ibis, and seagulls, the feathers flew. I also saw evidence of cast-off black feathers from probably the cormorants or anhingas. Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy your trails weather and desire permitting.

  2. This wildlife right beside the residential area seen in the background. Nature adapting to the age of anthropocene.
