Are the Pelicans Lost or Did I Miss Something in Biology Class?
This is the 2nd year that Pelicans have landed on our lake here in Nebraska. Last year there were a few Pelicans and hundreds of Cormorants. This year, well, take a look. On the coldest days they huddled together, hundreds of them, like a huge mound of marshmallows. Other birds showing up about the same time included Blue Herons, a White Egret. A few weeks later the Green Heron showed up and we could hear woodpeckers, and owls. The wildlife is the best part of our home in Nebraska. The worst part? We're 1,400 miles from mom, grandpa and the kids.
