White Pelicans at Ridgefield NWR

Posted in

2011 was the best year in at least the last five years for seeing American White Pelicans at Ridgefield NWR (River ‘S’ Unit). I was seeing flocks of about 35 while others have reported seeing up to 80 birds at a time. This is a short video of one of my sightings, taken on July 19, 2011. I used my Canon 7D with a Canon 400mm f5.6L lens. You can also find a Pelican flight shot on this site in the Bird Gallery, “Herons, Bitterns, Cranes, Pelicans, etc.” section.
