And the swan, and the pelican, and the gier eagle, (Leviticus 11:18 KJV)
On December 23rd, Dan and I were birdwatching at Circle B Bar Reserve here in Polk County Florida, and what a day it was. They had just had the Christmas Bird Count a few days earlier and had counted over 7,000 American White Pelicans. See Birdwatching in Polk County – December 2009
I just got through putting together my first attempt of combining photos and video together. The videos and the photos will give you an idea of the many pelicans flying over. They are not like Canadian Geese that squawk constantly, but were silent. What you heard was the whoosh of their wings as they flapped. Unfortunately, it didn’t come through in the video. (This is an updated video with sound of music instead of my mouth running as the 1st one was.)
I am never disappointed at the Circle B.
Here is another person’s video of the White Pelicans taken a few days later.
Here is the list of birds I reported to eBird for that birdwatching day.
