Spring Pelicans

pelican flight springFriends, these white pelicans flew over in their migratory route on Wednesday.  I saw three big flocks circling and moving north and west.  They breed in western Minnesota and North Dakota so they may have been a bit off their usual migration route.  I jumped out of my vehicle alongside the four lane and stood on the shoulder to shoot these guys and gals, the big trucks were whizzing by, but i didn’t even hear them, all i saw was blue sky and birds, it has been a long winter and yesterday it was 75 degrees F, wonderful, til Tomorrow MJ
