Jan 13, 2016: American White Pelican

Shortly after I arrived home (at 1430), I looked out the back and saw a large white bird fly across the south lake.  At first I thought "a swan", but when I put my binoculars onto it, I said, "damn, it's a pelican!"   During the 1st lap I relocated the American White Pelican.  He (I'm assuming it's a male since it's lost and he probably didn't ask for directions to nearest open water) was among the congregation of Canada Geese on the south lake ice.  This is a digiscoped photograph.1/14/16 (Wolf. Oesterreich)
