American White Pelican - Kachina meadow
From a distance we knew it was a large bird, bigger than a turkey vulture. As it approached we saw it was a white bird with black wing edges. It soared in circles above the meadow and then flew directly overhead. I could see it had a long neck and its feet did not extend much beyond the short tail. Another birder mostly likely saw the same bird today at the Kachina Wetlands. Exciting!
