Yes! That is correct. Saylorville and Red Rock Reservoirs are major stopover points for the American White Pelican during their annual Fall migration. A PCC Naturalist will lead a discussion about these large, odd, yet graceful birds. We’ll discuss some of their unique adaptations, why so many of them gather in Iowa, and if conditions allow we’ll travel down to the lakeshore to view these magnificent birds. FREE.
