Pelicans?

Postby wigeon1040 » Mon Oct 02, 2006 7:31 pm

Now being a newer resident to Kansas, and doing my first bit of hardcare goose scouting in the areas, I keep finding myself following flocks of birds which I believe to be geese from far away but then upon closer inspection turn out to be nothing but large fish eating freaks of nature. I was wondering if this is just my random luck to keep spotting these large flights of feathered fish eaters or is this a normal thing in Kansas plus I thought these birds were primarily found in Florida. If seeing Pelicans is a normal thing how long do they stick around and are they any tell tale sign of migration patterns for waterfowl?

start keeping count and you'll see 3 mil. of them pass through the state, it sounds like you've figured out the diff. between them and snows, so now you'll know better
"why are they landing over there?"
"hold my gun, i can't steer"
WAR WAZZU!!!

They are amazing. I always see some big birds coming in the distance and get ready and realize, oh, they are just pelicans! :thumbsdown:

I think they are pretty neat birds, but when they get your hopes up of being some geese coming, tends to make you a bit upset!

Hey you were the one driving who got all excited "look there is a bunch of geese!" So I wouldn't be talking too much. :laughing:
Yet the same thing happened the next day when me and the Kankle went out driving around but since I was driving this time and actually come prepared to scout aka. bring binocs, it was little easier to figure out the difference. :toofunny:
