Pelicans Visit Bend

pelicans-visit-bend[1]Two pelicans, evidently attracted to Bend’s mirror pond by the swans and ducks, visited the Deschutes River within the city limits over the week-end and attracted considerable attention.  The big-billed birds several times took to the air and mystified numerous Bend folk who watched them as they winged their way low over the town.

Eight pelicans were seen over the city last week, but, so far as known, they did not light on the river.
