American White Pelican: Pelecanus erythrorhynchos

An American White Pelican enjoying a wonderful spring sunset high in the Rocky Mountains. The grass is just greening up around the edges of the lake but the Pelicans have arrived on their way to the boreal forests where many breed. A sure sign summer is on it’s way.

  1. Tens of thousands fly north along the Mississippi Flyway taking them over our skies. Many of them stay in our area over the summer. Nearly every nice sunny day, we can go to the nearby river and reservoir and find some in the water or circling in thermals overhead. They are a beautiful site in the sky.
