Brown Pelicans at Tokeland

As it turned out, going to Tokeland instead of going straight home was the best decision of the day. It didn’t take long to see why I hadn’t seen the Brown Pelicans I had expected to see in Westport. They were on the small offshore island where I’ve always seen the Godwits in the past.

All I had to do to get some great pelican shots was wait for them to fly out from the island when they were hungry

or fly back to the safety of the flock

when they had finished fishing.

As it turned out, it got me much closer to the Brown Pelicans than I would normally get at Westport. The highlight of the day.

  1. Love the birds, and your photos of them. We seldom see them here, but when I used to summer on Lake Nipigon, they nested on an island in the lake and were everywhere.
