White Pelican Flock

White Pelicans in Flight

I’ve tried to stop taking  bird in flight shots unless they are really close as I just end up disappointed and deleting them.

However, when this flock was coming, I took the shot. Lots of them actually.

We had seen a large number of these Pelicans as the sun was coming up. This was about an hour later and hundreds more passed over us in a few waves over several minutes.

In the next photo you can pick out a couple of Cormorants in the mix. I’m not sure if they were flying with the Pelicans or if the Pelicans passed them.

We were hoping the flock might land in a nearby pond, but they kept on moving at a pretty brisk pace.
