Parked below the Saylorville dam, I noticed a group of 17 American White Pelicans in formation flying towards the dam. A few minutes later I talked to another birder and he said he saw about 50 flying much higher in addition to the group I saw (he saw them, too). I headed to Jester Park figuring they may be roosting in their usual spots and found about 45 in the middle off the lake just opposite Campground #3. I posted on EBird which called it 'rare' for this time of year so I included a picture (take through my scope so not great but the best I could do at the moment).
