    Hi yall,

    I've got a list of wild animals around here that I want to get pictures of....

    pelicans weren't on the list!!! [​IMG]

    We live up in northeast Louisiana & I've never seen pelicans this far north. Come to find out we are in their migration route.
    Our little bayou was almost all frozen over,except right in front of our place. I spent most of the day watching them, they are a joy to watch.
    I hope they stick around for awhile,I would love to get more pictures of them.

    Even the neutra had a hard time getting around.

    How cool.
    I wish we could view our pond from the house. I do enjoy seeing the birds that stop to rest there.

    thanks yall,
    they're still around this morning, but have gone down too far to get a decent pic. Hopefully this evening they'll come back.

    I guess their usual feeding spot got frozen over & they found a nice place here.
