These once-scarce birds call Grand Lake home on their annual migration from early February - May and early September - November.  It is an incredible sight that everyone should see at least once.

The Grand Lake region celebrates the arrival of the White Pelican with the Pelican Festival, October 10-13, 2019.

The White Pelican is one of our largest living birds, weighing between 10 and 17 pounds with a wingspan of 8 - 9 feet.

Adult white pelicans eat an average of four pounds of fish daily, mostly chad. They swim about in the shallow water, dipping their bills repeatedly for fish, letting excess water drain out the sides of the gular pouch.
