You know what I miss?

The pelicans. Yeah, how silly is that?? Apparently pelicans are a relatively new thing in the Fox Valley. I remember seeing them last year but before that, I don't think there were any living in the area. You can't miss them though, they're huge white and black birds with their pelican faces moving back and forth. If you want to see them up close, you can go to Neenah. Over here in Appleton, you're likely to see a group of pelicans way up in the sky, higher than all the other birds. They hover and glide in big circles. It's amazing. I wondered if they flew so high to get out of the heat because you'd see them often on really hot days, lazily flying.

I don't really have a reason for liking them. A bird person I am not. In fact, birds kind of freak me out. Those pelicans though, they make me want to sit around and just watch as long as they'll fly.


  1. I wish there was a like button on Blogger.

  2. I'm with you one that Sheri. I've been looking and looking for them. They must migrate early.
