For a couple of days, my "Bird of Interest", the American White Pelican (Pelecanus erythrorhynchos) made a quick layover near my home in Missouri, during their northward migration.
Pelicans have always been a "bird of interest" to me, partially because I see so infrequently (only during the spring and fall migrations) and partially due to their very interesting behaviors. I particularly admire their "synchronized flight" behavior. They seemingly communicate to each other their next move, and the entire group executes it with fine precision, akin to the Navy's Blue Angels, or the Air Force's Thunderbirds.
Here are a few of my favorite white pelican images that I've been able to capture over the past few years:
