White Pelican

I just returned from a trip back to Minnesota to spend time with my sisters. We took a short drive through the Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge.  I was hoping to see some sandhill cranes. While I did see a few sandhill cranes (I will post them another day), my biggest surprise was seeing all of the American White Pelicans. There were flocks of big white birds flying and I initially thought they were great egrets. But upon closer inspection, it turned out they were pelicans.
