The White Pelicans have returned


Every winter, our lakes become home to a flock of white pelicans. It’s a wonderful sight when they arrive. And we never know quite when the come. But today was the day.

Driving home, there was a sudden and unexplained traffic jam along Dalrymple Drive which borders one of our city lakes. Then to my right, the whole flock appeared grouped together as they fished for food. People on bikes were stopped, people running were stopped, and people driving were stopped to get a glimpse of these amazing birds.

I’ll try to get pictures tomorrow!
