A Squadron of Pelicans
The Fontenelle Forest Wetlands hosted a squadron of American White Pelicans this morning (March 30). They dropped in to relax and do a little fishing. There are several names for groups of pelicans - Squadron, Pod, Brief, Pouch and Scoop.
The calendar says that Spring has started. For the most part, the wetlands still look like Winter. One tiny area has started to change. Grass is sprouting and an American Robin is hopping around. Spring is here.
A North American Bullfrog is hiding in the remains of last summer's foliage.
This Lincoln's Sparrow is migrating through Nebraska today. It was searching for food in the forest path.
