American White Pelicans
- Yesterday afternoon, ( 5 Jan) on the lower arm of Clear Lake, the pelicans
had a swimming parade. It was a mile long, streching from Baylis Point to
Jensen Point, and must have contained at least 500 of these great birds.
What a beautiful sight!
- For about a week now, all the residents and weekenders in the vicinity of
Jago Bay have been totally amazed and fascinated seeing the hundreds of AW
Pelicans feeding on the shad (we think) They are accompanied by large
numbers of small gulls, I believe Bonapartes, and some cormorants. On
Friday, we think every one of the 758 counted last year at Christmas Bird
Count were in Jago Bay in one huge flapping feeding mass.
