|The shamed couple. They apparently called in friends from high places.|
Immediately after they swam away from the "holier than thou" cormorants, pelicans soon filled the sky.

The pelican migration is happening earlier this year; as many as 300 were counted around the LSU Lakes. One poor pelican got caught in a fishing line, tearing up a wing pretty badly. After flailing around for a couple of hours, it was cut free from the line by Animal Control and brought to LSU Vet School for treatment and antibiotics. Thankfully, he will be fine and will find his flock eventually. It is imperative to take care of your fishing lines properly, where wildlife cannot be harmed.
Here is an article about our early Pelican migration if you have time, or are interested in reading more about it.
