White Pelicans stop on Lake Decatur in Central Illinois for a few weeks in the spring and fall during their migration between the Northern Great Plains or Canada and the Gulf coast. We always look forward to their arrival and are sad to see them go. The pelicans were settling down for the night in this late afternoon photo.
