Link to Paying Ready Attention
This has been an exciting weekend. The migration has started full scale. A large group of Pelicans finally arrived ... not as many as in the past. I think they must have been separated when they had to find a temporary place to rest and feed because the first time they arrived our lake was still frozen. But, they are here, just the same ... comical lumbering at first glance, but amazing and graceful in reality. In addition to the Pelicans the Cormorants, Mergansers, Golden Eye, Greater Scaup, Wood Ducks, Loons and, of course the Mallards have all come through. I haven't seen the Coots yet ... but they will be here with other birds I am sure. Migrations are amazing and I am so glad we have an area that will support their travels by allowing them to rest and feed.
I have more Pelican pictures and some other interesting pictures I took this weekend which I will share another day. I will once again apologize for the quality of the pictures. I have concluded that since I can't get close enough to get high quality photos with my equipment, I am going to have to be satisfied with capturing the moment ... I hope I have done that for you today ... Happy WBW:)
