What a day to be impressed! A few friends and I went pelican hunting on the south end of Kentucky Lake.
My pics aren't perfect, but I tried my best. I was in a moving boat plus the pelicans did not stop in mid air for me to get the best snaps.
We have been searching for the pelicans as they migrate southward through Kentucky Lake for a couple weeks. A friend shared the pic below of the pelicans at the north end of the lake.
This was my third attempt to cruise the lake and look for the pelicans. With a nine foot wingspan, the American White Pelican is one of our largest birds.
Last weekend, we found a small squadron of approximately 30 pelicans but they were in such shallow water, we couldn't get any good pics. We even hit lake bottom with the boat and had to push our way out of the shallow water. WE TRIED!
Did you know the pelican does not dive for fish from the air? They like to eat in shallow water.
That's it for todays pelican hunt but stay tuned, I hope to do some more hunting this weekend. - Judy.
