Mega Rare Great White Pelican More Photos

Here are some more photos of the Great White Pelican which showed up 2/1/17 at J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel, FL. She (we know by her plumage) only stayed at the refuge for about two hours, but what was thrilling was this may be the same bird that showed up here last Feb. and stayed at the refuge for three days. This is a bird usually found in Africa, Asia and Europe, so it is amazing to think she may have made it here across the Atlantic Ocean. She hung out with the large group of American White Pelicans which are common in the refuge, then flew. We do not know where she is now, but we are still looking. You should too!!
