Very many doves left in the sunflowers? Didn't know if it would be worth the 2hr drive!

MORE GOOSE POND FWA AMERICAN WHITE PELICANS 9/24/14 Yesterday morning (September 24 2014) staff member Dennis Workman and I tallied 523 AMERICAN WHITE PELICANS in Main Pool East while running the weekly waterfowl survey. Over the past 10 days birders have been reporting pelicans in the north Goose Pond Units including GP10N and GP11N. There were also far off observations of pelicans flying over the south end of Main Pool East. Yesterday all the property pelicans apparently gathered together in Main Pool East; checks in the north Units turned up no pelicans. The pelicans early yesterday morning were mainly concentrated in the northwest end of MPE near Hwy 59, with more groups scattered eastward and southward across the long narrow Unit. According to data from Ken Brock 523 American White Pelicans is a new property and state record high count for fall (numbers are higher in spring). Some tips on observing the pelicans. Yesterday morning Dennis and I kept our distance. We observed the pelicans from the old high levee that runs along Black Creek. The pelicans did not flush while we were watching them. Later someone in a white shirt apparently approached the pelicans via the west levee of MPE. The pelicans moved away en masse. It would better to give the pelicans some respectable distance and let them forage or rest in peace. Seeing this many American White Pelicans in Indiana in fall is a thrilling and unprecedented experience. Others should be able to share the moment. --Lee Sterrenburg, DNR bird monitoring volunteer Goose Pond FWA
