A "Brace" of pelicans...

4 posts in this topic

The word "brace" is used when describing two or a pair. In this case I thought it was fitting for this capture. A "brace"

of white pelicans in almost perfect aerial synch.

Nice shot! We don't get to see pelicans very often here, and would love to get some shots. I guess a trip towards the western part of the state is in order!

Thanks! Manitoba lays claims to having 1/3 of the world's white pelican population. I not sure whether or not there's any validity to those claims, but I will say that there is thousands of them in my area alone! Hear in Lockport, one can observe pelicans at close quarters on a daily basis.

Great shot, Stu! Excellent capture.

We had tons of them in N.D., and I even always see several when we hit the family cabin near Bemidji. Sure is an amazing sight when thousands of them are nesting on a single island. That's a lot of birds!

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
