American Pelicans at Lake Chautauqua

American Pelicans on Lake Chautauqua. They were way out there. Without my new big lens I couldn't have taken a photograph of them where you could clearly identify them as pelicans, although Scott and I knew they were pelicans by the black tips on their wings. The paths of many migratory birds have been shifting over the past several years, most likely due to global warming, and pelicans have started migrating through Illinois. I'm sure the huricanes will affect migrations this year, too.
