It always makes me nervous when there is fishing too close to the dam, but these white pelicans seem to be enjoying it immensely.
White pelicans usually winter farther south than we are, but they seem to like it just fine here. Their numbers have increased greatly in the past year, and they can be spotted just about any time near the dam and other spots along the river.
Could be that they love the fishing here.
They are beautiful. We welcome them to our part of the state.
