Kim those are American White Pelicans. I think they are looking for a school of fish or they just like flying the solars like the Hawks do. I see them do it here to out on the river in winter. Once is a rare occasion we see them in summer.
I am late and I fully agree with Donna. We saw this over our yard last spring! It was beautiful and amazing. We live about 5 miles from a large water source and at that time, it still had water. It dried up with the drought.
Last year drought was pretty bad Nation wide, sorry the large water source is now dried up. Chillybean. I was so delighted of the amazing sight of these Pelicans. I'm hoping they'll return soon. Thanks again Donna for the positive I.D.
Speaking of wishing upon a star. My wish came true! While heading out to see the Eagle nest this evening, I didn't see the Eagles but to make up for the miss, I saw another flock of Pelicans. That really made my day!
