Pelicans in West Lafayette

White pelicans have strayed from their usual migration route to the west of here and are now hanging out at the Celery Bog near Elaine and Larry's house. We saw them circling in the sky, and also sitting on this rock in the pond.

The wooded areas were carpeted with little white flowers, the frogs in the bog were singing loudly, and we also saw a very tiny turtle basking on the painted strip that divides the lanes of the bike path. Many other birds were flying and swimming, including this one:

What a sweet, tiny bird! He looks perched and studying it all!
