In lieu of readers’ wildlife today, we’ll have a beautiful landscape by Stephen Barnard, and in it somewhere is a passel of American White Pelicans (Pelecanus erythrorhynchos). Can you spot them? Stephen issues a challenge: “I doubt that anyone could spot the American White Pelicans this photo.”
Yes, I know that “passel” isn’t the proper term for a group of pelicans! The photo will be large, and will overlap the writing to the right when first posted, but I’ll quickly post something else to get the words out of the way. Wait ten minutes after posting before you try to find them.
Alternatively, you can click on the photo twice (with a break between the clicks) to get a standalone photo.
Now, gaze on the splendor of Idaho and find those pelicans! I’ll post the answer at 11 a.m. Chicago time. Don’t reveal the answer in the comments, though you can say if you’ve successfully found the birds.
