I love American White Pelicans and never miss a chance to try and sneak closer to get more pictures of them. There is quite a flock at Sturgeon Lake and to watch them fishing or in flight is indeed a treat. Did you know their bill can hold up to 12 litres of water that must be drained from the sides of their mouth before they can swallow the fish?

Calisthenics anyone?
