Watching the pelicans

Despite the overcast skies, we recently headed to Reelfoot Lake in hopes of seeing the white pelicans.  After looking for them in all the usual places, we finally found them at our last stop of the day.  It quickly became obvious that we weren’t the only ones watching them.  We spotted five eagles sitting high atop the trees — perhaps hoping to pick off a wounded pelican as easy prey.  Unfortunately, the grey day changed to a light drizzle, and then to rain, and our time of watching the pelicans came to an end.
