Autumn on the River

What a pleasant day it was for a pelican picnic.   It’s hard to believe that just this weekend the weather was warm enough to go out in the boat and take these pictures.    No snow or ice down here today, just shiver me timbers weather!

Pelican Picnic

One pelican leaves a wake as he takes off and the other makes quite a splash as he lands.

How low can you go?

Pelicans weren’t the only wild life on the river.   The cormorants were there also shown here with wings spread out to dry.

And last but certainly not least, the heron assumes his post on the roof of a boat shed.
