These American White Pelicans seemed a bit off course on their migration. At least Ryan and I have never seen them in the valley and definitely not with snow on the ground!
Pelicans are one of my favorite birds! They can stand up to 4 ft tall and have a 9 ft wingspan.
We found this group feeding in the pond near Fern Ridge Dam. They cooperate in groups to circle around a group of fish in a shallow area and continually bob their heads up and down to catch fish.
We watched several birds catch some decent size fish, so big it took them a while to swallow! Taking these pictures just made my weekend! I hope you enjoy them!
