PELICANS AT RIVERLANDS

A wonderful bird is the pelican,
His bill will hold more than his belican,
He can take in his beak
Enough food for a week
But I’m damned if I see how the helican!

Dixon Lanier Merritt -1910

Pelicans are in at Riverlands,as flood waters over run the causeway at the dam. On Saturday there were a gazillion (scientific measurement 🙂 ). John Watson was about to call us when we pulled up. Text Messages were sent and many other Camera Club photographers arrived.

Sunday the water was higher and the pelicans while still in good numbers were fewer than Saturday. Sunday morning was a cold affair with temperatures not much above freezing with a good East wind to boot. Sunday afternoon, was warmer in more than one way. Long story that will wait.

This morning, even fewer. There will be birds close to the ramp as long as the water is high but the higher the water,the harder it will be for the birds to fish and they will go where the food is.

A few for your ‘viewing pleasure’   🙂

Rainy days and Mondays and Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Thursdays……LOL

Rain and cloudy days have been the rule lately. Snuck in a few images between downpours today. Exposure Compensation at +2 most of the morning. Gave up around 10:30 or so and went to El Mel ,our favorite place for bird seed and other bird goodies.

If y’all need any bird stuff or lawn and garden supplies etc– go see Mr. John and he will take care of ya.

Here are the images……..

At least my friends have been sending wonderful images of eagles,peregrines and other critters. 🙂
