American White Pelican

If I wasn’t a world-class wilderness explorer I’d be inclined to think that pelican just laid an egg! She’s been the talk of the bog lately, floating around the north side for a week and a half. I’ll wait for her to come down here, was my thinking early on. She’ll be floating right past my favorite spot any day now. Sigh, fine! It’s been ten days and I heard she’s still up there, so off we go to the far north side. Aaaand she’s not here, figures! As I made my way back to the south, I had to kick myself a little, “It’s your own dang fault for waiting!” That’s when I spotted a big white somebody smack-dab in the middle of my favorite spot!
