Description

A Squadron, a flock or a pod? It can be all three but no matter what,this is a whole lot of pelicans. The American White Pelicans migrate to Pyramid Lake in early spring to feed on the cui-ui fish. Anywhere from 8 to 10 thousand of them call the 247 acre Anaho Island home in the spring. I am lucky to only live 40 minutes from such a wonderful spiritual lake that is owned by the Paiute Tribe.
