While hiking a wooded trail that runs beside the lake, we found a view through the tree tops of a group of White Pelicans flying high overhead.
Continuing on, we suddenly heard a loud noise, and were surprised to see a flock of White Pelicans mixed with Double-crested Cormorants plummeting onto the lake near where we were hiking. Two birds that you wouldn’t expect to see together, but united in a common purpose.
After the commotion of the landing, the fishing party proceeded quietly along the shore for a short distance and then headed out across the lake toward the opposite shore.

Amazing team work😊
They looked focused on their goal.
You’re most definitely welcome.
Very nice article and topic. 👏👏. We see the Pelicans with Spoonbills doing the same thing. Good to know, thanks.
I know that has to be a beautiful sight! 🙂
Wonderful photos. I don’t see pelicans up this way.
We are able to see them during spring and fall migration.
They are beautiful.
Look at that activity. Spring is here … and you captured it well.
Great photos, especially seeing the white feathers of the Pelican against the blue sky and water.
Thanks Linda! It’s always fun to see the pelicans.
