Plethora of Pelicans

I had no idea there were so many pelicans in Wascana Park…

The pictures above were taken a couple of weeks ago, so then I had to go into my photo library and have a look at the other pelican pictures I’ve taken, mostly near the Albert Street Bridge. The last two are my favourite, a happy coincidence of good timing and just the right light.

I hate to admit that even though I’ve lived in Regina for a long time I’ve never been to the Wascana Waterfowl Park – sure I’ve seen geese and ducks and pelicans around Wascana Lake, but the Waterfowl Park is a nice little area I’ve always known about, but just never checked it.  Next time bread is required though, as sometimes I wondered if I should get so close without having something to offer the geese and ducks!

I’ve never seen this kind of duck before…

I’d say this pelican never worries where its next meal is coming from…

“You do know that people usually bring bags full of bread crumbs, right?” I think my new friend was a little disappointed with me.
