Pelicans on the Marsh

Frequently, when we drive between our old orchard location on Bohling Rd and the new one on Kroncke Rd, we go around the block on Harvey Rd and drive through the edge of Schoenenberg Marsh. It's right around the corner from the orchard and it's always interesting to see what birds are there. For the past few weeks, we have been catching glimpses of pelicans. We've been hoping to get some pictures, but they seem to know when we have a camera handy. I did find some pictures on Flickr, though, so someone must have had more patience (or more time) than we did.

This weekend, a couple of ladies stopped in to enjoy opening weekend at the orchard. They were telling me there are actually more than 50 pelicans in the area and it's been more than 100 years since they've been seen here. We think that's pretty cool.

So, next time you come out to the orchard, take the time to drive through the marsh and look for the pelicans.

Really interesting. Fun to spot birds that aren't normally in the area.

I guess I never thought of pelicans as inland birds. How cool that you've spotted them :)

I love white pelicans! We used to get them in the spring when I lived on the coast, but I never got such a good look at them. Wonderful pic! :)
