Pelican Day

Although I had things like grocery shopping to day, seeing those pelicans while at The Forks made me think of going to Lockport, which is just north of Winnipeg.  I haven’t been to Lockport in years, but there are always Pelicans there and I knew that is where those birds were heading.

So, I drove to Lockport, parked my car near the river and started walking.  At first all I saw was lots of water and then I finally saw some Pelicans on the other side of the river – so I got back in the car and drove over there.

I should have put this in better order – the three pelicans should have been next and then the four pelicans – oh well!  🙂

I have to be fair and show some other birds now.
