Very nice,Ian. Are there "Ballets in the sky" in Fla. too? Every day there is a gathering such as your image #2 on an adjacent island here. Then a small group will take off, travel, say, about 300-400 yards and then start slow circling as they gain altitude. Other groups will follow and join in, one group at a time, until the flock may number close to a hundred pelicans or more. Then off they go in a single direction; but again in groups.
I have also seen large flocks in those same lazy circles very high over the Illinois River in Peoria. I first thought they were Snow Geese. ;-)a

Sounds cool Rog. I personally didn't see any of that activity but I'd guess if it happens elsewhere it likely happens here too. I only saw singles or pairs flying around the area; mostly they were just standing around.

Thanks Peter, fun to see them in big numbers. Birders up here get all excited when ONE wanders up here.
