Birdwatching at Circle B Bar Reserve – Jan 2011

Here is a video that I shot out at the Circle B Bar Reserve in Lakeland, FL on January 18th. We went out to watch some of the 4,000 American White Pelicans land at the marsh. We got there about 4:30 pm and stayed until almost 6 pm.

I left the sound on so that you can catch the amazement in my voice. My english is terrible and my words nutty, but I was thoroughly enjoying my “birdwatching adventure.” This is what it is really like to go birdwatching with me. I get so amazed at watching God’s created critters.

Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. (Psalms 16:11 KJV)

I have more of these and pictures, but will save them for another time. Slower connections speeds will have enough problems loading just one video.

On the video I said about 100 feet over my head, it was more like 20-30 feet over our heads. The pelicans were landing right behind us.

  1. Really enjoyed your video. I am leading a nature photography group from Atlanta ( to Circle B in early February. I am hopeful the wintering White Pelicans will be still around at that time. Can you give me an idea where they were landing on the Reserve. I would like to give the folks a little edge on where they might shoot the birds landing. For example, do they tend to land on the lake or in the open marsjhes? Thanks for any advice and the video.
