Very cool! I remember seeing massive aggregations of them up on Green Bay, but have never seen one this far south either.

That is very cool! There was one at Busse a couple of years ago. Very cool to see.

Beuatiful shot. Spectacular colors!

LOTS of pelicans on the Desplaines and Illinois rivers. I-55 and west. Just insane numbers during the migration.

Thanks! That was from a few years back so the NikonD300 probably which I still use for macro stuff mostly.

From the pen of the immortal Ogden Nash:

A wonderful bird is the pelican
His beak can hold more than his belly can
He holds in his beak enough food for a week
But I don't see how the hell he can
Keep calm and fish on...

There's a fine line between fishing and just sitting there looking stupid
