Notes from the Lake

Here he is - the Great American Pelican. I have given up on getting a better picture than this - just can`t get close enough! I would still like to get a photo of one in the air though - there they are so majestic with their huge wingspan. I look forward to seeing the pelicans every year when I come back to the lake. They really are such gorgeous birds!

Kerry,
I enjoy your notes from the lake as much as your CQ entries! Keep 'em coming; they can be my virtual vacation for the summer.

Are you really going to be able to come to Colorado in September? That would be great!

Hi Kerry... thanks for visiting my blog, it was nice to hear from you again.... I live at the lake and for the first time last year we had pelicans on the lake... it was lovely to see sooooo many of them. In November, however, I was called upon to look after one of these lovely creatures for a few days until we could get it to another care facility... seeing one up close and personal was a rare treat!
