Talk about déjà vu. It was a week ago that I posted images of the pelicans at the “Duck Pond.” I was in Maquoketa again yesterday for lunch with friends and I fully expected them to be gone.
However on my way out-of-town I discovered they are beginning to look like permanent squatters.
This guy paddled away from me when I first arrived but I just stayed on the observation platform for about 15 minutes and he swam very close to me and didn’t seem to mind the shutter clicking.
Many of the Canada geese are nesting now and they seem to cohabit pretty well with the pelicans.
There were pelicans flying in and leaving the entire 30 minutes I was there. Busy airport. 🙂
Enjoy your day and be careful.
