White Pelicans Landing

.

I couldn’t believe what I saw coming towards me while birding at the Riverfront Park.

Here’s a pair of American White Pelicans coming in for a landing on one of the ponds.  They have an incredible wingspan of 8 to 9 1/2 feet!

I later talked to a park personnel and two locals at the pond, all three said this was the first they’d seen White Pelicans here.  Talk about my right place, right time moment!

I’ll share a few more of them in some other posts.  🙂
