That’s right. Pelicans. A bunch of them are hanging out on Perch Lake along Minnesota Highway 23 between Gary-New Duluth and Fond du Lac. Check ’em out if you get a chance.
One of the coolest things about pelicans is watching them land on the water. They set their wings on final approach a long way out, gliding softly down. Their big feet hit first, like water skis, and the bird finally settles down.
