When you hike, you are constantly looking up!
Last weekend when we hiked at Blue Run Park, we saw a flock of Wood Storks high in the sky.
They were on there way for parts unknown and reminded us of Geese, flying in a “V’.
I wasn’t sure what they were until we put the photos on the computer and got out the bird books just to make sure.
This is a photo I took of one in Tuscawilla Park last summer.
So this week, when I walked out in the driveway and looked up at a large flock of birds, I wasn’t sure what I was seeing!
But after looking at my photos up close and comparing them to Sibley’s Guide to Birds, I realized we had just seen a large flock of American White Pelicans!
A large flock of White Pelicans were flying over us here in central Florida! WOW! That’s the first time we’ve ever seen them in the wild.
We saw one at Tuscawilla park awhile back, so here’s what they look like up close.
It’s always amazing to see birds and animals in the ‘wild’!
