Our lake is a flutter with pelicans. It has been two years since the ice on our lake melted early enough for them to come here for a "bed and breakfast" before they continue their migration up north. Yesterday there were a few straglers, this morning there were over one hundred of them. They must have arrived at night. They stay in an inlet on the north end of the lake. During the day they fly around to different lakes on the chain and then return to their inlet at night. What a joy!
Oops ... a stranger in their midst ... the eagles have been showing up as well :)
