Pelicans


I had watched
the many
large white birds
sitting
in the warm water
at the outlet
of the
Breckenridge sewer plant
for many days
believing
that they were
snowy geese
or swan.

So very idyllic in the water
reflecting the blue sky
and white snow covered peaks.

And then
a few days ago
the local newspaper
put their photo
on the front page
with a caption
about
the Pelicans on the lake.

I can't even spell ornithology.

Maybe I need to buy a bird book
