Reports started coming in Friday evening of sightings of an American White Pelican at DeKorte Park. Could this be George, the same Pelican that graces the park every year? I’m guessing yes.
American White Pelicans are a westen species and their range map has them breeding in Wyoming, the Dakotas, Montana, Alberta and Saskatchewan. So seeing George is a special treat. Thanks to Chris Takacs for these photos taken over the weekend!
