Very cool shots... I'd like to run across one or two of these birds, but I don't think I have ever seen any around here.

That's quite a gaggle you got there. I like the first one the best. The reflections add to the composition of the photo. Nice work.

Love the first one, but all of them are outstanding. It amazes me how some people around here can get such wonderful detail with white or black birds.

Great shots of these "pascles".

A PASCLE of pelicans (pronounced "passal" )

Paul Jacobson

This term may be authentic but could not be confirmed.

Paul has also kindly supplied some additional information on this one.

Only applies to the white pelican, which winters on the southern coasts of Florida and California with it's brown cousins. Summers find it on the great plains at many small reservoirs. (There are currently around 2000 or so at Jackson Lake State Park in northeast Colorado.) According to the book, they are found as far north as the middle of Alberta and Saskatchewan.

I live in the midlands of SCand don't spend much time near the shore, haven't ever seen one around here that I can think of. Don't know if they like fresh water, but I haven't even seen them at the big lake we have down here.
