Perfect example of a symbiotic relationship... The White Pelicans fish in groups and "herd" the schools of fish toward the banks, where the egrets eagerly await the easy prey!

White Pelicans nest and live in the northern part of North America in the spring and summer and come south for the fall and winter. Some years, many of them will stay on the university and Capitol lakes for weeks or months. I can't imagine how there is enough fish to support them all!

[Video quality disclaimer: much of this video was taken early morning unfortunately facing into the sun, which makes for poor color & resolution. If I get the chance, I'll try again under better light conditions!]
Also, I got the date wrong in the title...and will have to redo at some point...

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
