Formation flying American White Pelicans

These four massive birds came gliding by the other day, taking a brief respite on the lake. They are undoubtedly preparing to head south to warmer environs as winter is quickly approaching the Colorado Front Range. With a wingspan that can reach an amazing 8+ feet, they are extraordinary fliers, able to soar with great ease, rarely flapping their wings.

American White Pelicans spend their winters along the Gulf and southern Pacific coasts as well as in Mexico. Springtime sees them move north with many going to Canada and the northern plains but some choosing to stop part way and spend the summer in the Centennial State, northern California and a few other spots.
