This colony of American White Pelicans was present in 2004.
I can't recall seeing them before that year. They have selected a
perfect setting where the Colorado flows into the lake and there is
a large delta, perfect for wading in some places, and deep and
swift with a current to attract aquatic life a few steps away.
Photo above shows a waterskier beyond the colony of pelicans.
The shallow areas are easily visible and confined to one fairly
large are near the southwest end of Shadow Mountain Lake.
