While daddy-Uber was shuttling the boys back from soccer we noticed many white shapes on the Black River.  A quick glance confirmed that it was a bunch of pelicans.  I’m not sure that “a bunch” is quite accurate…  “Hundreds” is a more accurate descriptor.  Instead of heading straight home we headed to airport beach and got a better view.

After the boys and I got home Becky was more than happy to jump in the car and see them too.  by the time we got back they were making their way up river for the night and it was a beautiful parade of those awesome large birds.


Living on the Mississippi flyway is incredible for many reasons, I’m glad I took the time to pause from life to enjoy another one of them!
