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.
