A Pair of Pelicans

Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary

A pair of White Pelicans at Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary.  Riverlands is just south of Alton, IL and has over 8.5 miles of trail featuring viewing platforms and bird blinds. The trails bring you through prairies, marshes, and bottomland forest habitats, and provide great viewing opportunities for the great variety of birds and other wildlife.

While I was here I watched flocks of these birds fly in and out of the area along with geese and ducks.

This is just off of the the Great River Road (see previous post) and an amazing place.
