Pelicans at Pt. Mouillee 7/16/2014

   Over the past month up to 62 American White Pelicans have been seen at Pt. Mouillee State Game Area.  This morning after I got off of work I had about an hour to seek them out.  They weren't hard to find.  From the Roberts Rd. parking lot it was about a one mile bike ride to the first group of 23 that I spotted on a tiny island in the Lead Unit across from west of Cell 2.  Later I saw 12 more in Cell 3.
