The American White Pelicans are arriving here in Wisconsin. Most of the lakes are still frozen in winters harsh grasp but the rivers are opening up fast with the recent warm up and snow melt. They are a very large bird and are enjoyable to watch in the air and on the water.
The American White Pelican is a large amazing bird i love to watch and photograph. It looks as if this Pelican is going the wrong way but he banks and falls in with the others.
They are so graceful on the water and in flight, not so much on land, though they do pretty well.This Pelican has a band on it's leg to help wildlife officials to keep track of these birds. The population is growing in Wisconsin and i love to watch and photograph these large birds.
