Pelicans have been in the reserve again Dec 13 and 14th. There were up to 5 individuals, I was not able to see tags on any of them.
It is impressive to watch these birds, especially in flight. They apparently have a wingspan of 6 to 8.5 feet. They glide within what looks like a couple of feet of the water so when they flap their wings the tips will often touch the surface.
