Question of the Week – White Pelicans

Posted by romeethredge on November 21, 2014

Last week I had a photo of some birds flying overhead and they were White Pelicans. They are very large birds that we see along the Chattahoochee River and I’ve seen them on the lower part of Spring creek. I’ve usually seen them in late December and January.  This was the earliest I’ve ever seen them and the most at one time, probably over a hundred in a few groups.  They were flying south for the winter, from Canada. They are often seen on fresh water.

I had a post concerning these birds just after Christmas you can link to here.

This week’s question is: What are these seeds that we found abundantly around grain bins and on the grain elevator platforms?
