Two male A.W. Pelicans ground a female !
Aggressive display flights are aggressive! While flying inches above the water they forced her to land! Anyone interested in a one mile hike to the SE fenceline next spring? It is fun, bring a lot of film! I've taken 300 photos an hour!

American White Pelican
Taking photos today at Mirror Lake in Hettinger, I saw this pelican with a small flock of Canadian geese. Walked slowly to get closer and once he spotted me he lifted up, flew toward me, then turned and flew to the other side of the lake. Amazingly
