This solitary Am. White Pelican flew over mid afternoon and I was able to get off a burst as it went overhead. Later in the afternoon, as I was leaving the refuge, a flock of about 20 flew over. Alas, no shots of the group.

Thanks for looking,

He didn't land but he did make a low pass over the pond. He was heading toward the rest of the flock that was out of photo range.... of course.:lol:

You don't realize how large these birds are until they fly right over you! This guy is already growing the horn on the bill that develops in breeding males. Nice catch.

No kidding, they are huge. :shock:
Much bigger than the Brown Pelicans at the coast.
Thanks for looking,
