The Pelicans are back!

The pelicans are migrating and took over "The rocks" in Jetty Park, at Cape Canaveral

Get out of my way, that was my spot last year and it's my spot this year also!

Hi my friends,
The white pelicans are migrating and back. Taking over "The Rocks" out in Jetty Park at the Cape Canaveral shores. I have captured some of them and it's fun to watch their cleaning rituals.

A large flock of White Pelicans winter also in the Indian River near Scottsmoor Landing. You might see them flying and feeding anywhere on Merritt Island.

Thank you very much for all your kind comments to my "Wordless Sunday" post. 
I'm gladly appreciate them.

Wishing you a good start in the new week.

Oh my I have never seen such a collection of pelicans In miami we had two that would fly past every morning. I never saw them coming back just going in the same direction every morning. :)

Every early spring they are back to the rocks, out in Cape Canaveral... hundreds of them. And when the summer comes they disappear, I don't know where they go.

Thanks for commenting, Lady! :)

They are amazing birds, indeed. I love watching them. They have personality!

Thanks for the kind comment, Marcie.

Last March when my wife and I were walking on the beach at Santa Barbara, at least a hundred pelicans suddenly landed on the sand about twenty feet in front of us. I will never forget that moment. I was absolutely thrilled. I never knew they traveled in large groups like that. I thought they were solitary birds.

We are always learning a lot from nature if we are open to it and aware.

Thanks for your nice comment, Marty!
