Pelicans, just bathing, are really quite pretty, especially in these photos that show every drop of the water splashing. The pix have all been amazingly detailed the last few days as you’ve caught a fishing, almost glutton-est, frenzy. I note that your notes keep referring to ASIAN Carp. Are they a problem brought into U.S. waters, or a plus. Are they not a great, tasty fish for people too? Just curious because it appears they sure are plentiful.
The asian carp are an invasive species not native. Brought to the U.S by the government for aqua farming in the deep south. To sell the fish overseas. The Mississippi River flooded and went over these ponds allowing them to enter the Mississippi River system where the population has exploded. Damaging many native species. Despite programs trying to eliminate them I doubt they ever will. Yes, they are edible, and are netted now and sold overseas and in the U.S. Oh, yeah, first time I have caught the pelicans bathing…
I wonder if the pelicans will ever get sick of eating carp.
New Hampshire Gardener,
Most all the pelicans will have migrated north by May so will have to find other food sources up north. Thank You…
