Strange Visitors

Sunday I received a phone call from a neighbor that there were pelicans on the pond.

He wasn't kidding! There is a huge flock of about 20 down there. We've never had pelicans on the farm before.

I have no idea what they are doing here.

Strange happenings.


  1. How fun to see! They must have been moving on through your area and needed a break. :-)

  2. wow that is weird, and neat! but shouldn't they be busy delivering babies somewhere?

  3. Wow! How crazy is that?!
    You got some great shots of them.

  4. Wonderful snaps! The closest to strange we've ever had is a couple of ducks in the swing park. The drake was pestering the poor female for mating but she was having none of it!

  5. Were they noisy or twenty quiet pelicans?

  6. I've never seen white pelicans. My mom has memorized a Nash Limerick about them.

    A wonderful bird is the pelican
    His beak holds more than his belican
    He holds in his beak
    Food enough for a week
    But I'm damned if I see how the helican.

    Only when we were little, Mom said the last line
    But I don't know how in the heck he does it.

  7. How cool is that -- and lucky that you had a friend call and tell you about it! ☺
