Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Celery Bog, American white Pelican and Ducks

windshield of my car. The Duck species had really increased today . I got to
watch the American white pelican take a (15)minute flight around the pond.
Good photo time. I arrived at 10:00am and the temp. was 38 degrees. it was
50 degrees when I left at 2:00 pm.
