While driving today I saw a pod of a dozen or so of these large birds flying overhead and while I didn’t any pics of them then, I figured I would post an image of one from back in March.
This time of year these birds are looking to move south to warmer conditions, then they were just returning to Colorado for the season.
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.
