looking for pelicans

rumor had it that the pelicans were back along the river. Who would have thought there are pelicans in the midwest? R and I went to check the rumor out. tow and barge going down the river, I'm not sure if its the Mississippi or the Missouri. Alton is close to the confluence of both these rivers. the dam makes this a good place for eagles and pelicans to have easy hunting. We didn't see any pelicans or eagles. Our winter has been too too warm for them to be plentiful. Good thing is I've found a new place to photograph, there is a migratory bird preserve that I didn't know about
