Nature Walks – The Pelican Parade

The other day we saw our first pelican for the season.   White Birds of the Lakes  The pelicans are always a very welcomed visitors and we never get tired of seeing them.  They are so beautiful.  This time, our pelican friend brought along some of his friends too.  There are a few names for a gathering of pelicans.  They are known as a brief, pod, pouch, scoop, or a squadron of pelicans.  Whatever name you choose to use, it was really cool to see them all swimming in line, putting on quite the parade, not just for us, but for some other feathered and furry friends as well.
