Saw this large gathering of pelicans this past week floating by my lakeside home. They have "hung around" our lake longer than ususal this time of year probably due to the good fishing they are finding due to our lowered lake level - a process initiated in preparation for some major lake improvement projects already in progress. Avid fishermen and women will have some great fishing to look forward to in a couple of years. They will just have to have patience as beautiful Black Hawk Lake is enhanced in the months ahead.
Do apologize for the somewhat blurry image. Either they or I was moving too fast.
