FROM READERS: Pelicans glide at Eagle Bluffs Conservation Area

Clyde Bentley is a professor at The Missouri School of Journalism and founder of MyMissourian. He sometimes shares his own photos. (Here's a column from him about the new From Readers section of our website.) 

We went for a drive to Eagle Bluffs Conservation Area on Saturday. At a distance, a very large flock of white birds rose off a lake. We were trying to determine if they were swans or snow geese until they flew over us. Pelicans! Geese flap, but pelicans glide. They looked like they were lazily swimming in the sky.

Eat your heart out, John Hall.

This story is part of a section of the Missourian called From Readers, which is dedicated to your voices and your stories. We hope you'll consider sharing. Here's how.
