Continuing with my alphabetical birds posts, the American White Pelicans are back. During the winter season a colony of these birds ends their day at this sandbar near the Mount Vernon subdivision park near my home. The photographer was standing on the lower limb of a park tree (moi?) to get a clear view over the park vegetation. Looking out beyond the birds, he (OK, I) also saw “Skeeter Ditch” on Tidy Island. To illustrate how reliably you can find these birds enjoying late afternoon happy hour at this location, see the attached satellite map from my Apple iPad Maps app!
