PELICAN TOUR DESCRIPTION

Join Stan Shadick for a 7-hour pelican photography and viewing driving tour to view a location where hundreds of American White Pelicans congregate before migrating south. We should also see many other kinds of ducks and other water birds.  This trip is ideal for photography of pelicans in flight.

Both novice and experienced bird watchers are welcome. A loaner pair of binoculars may be available if requested. The leader will bring a spotting scope to allow you to view the birds under high magnification.

♿ This tour is ideal for low-mobility persons because they may choose to remain in their vehicle during this driving tour.
