American White Pelican at Emma Matilda
This American White Pelican was cruising around the outlet creek of Emma Matilda Lake, looking for fish. We were sitting next to a bunch of spawning trout about 20 yards away, but this bird seemed not to be interested. Or maybe just not very hungry.

These are very large birds that migrate a considerable distance to the Rockies from the Pacific coast of California, Mexico, and Central America.

Photo taken June 2008.
