The birds are still present. Resting on a small island near the main CA island. I am currently viewing them with scope from the trail off the end of Kaine Hill Drive. They are distant and scope is needed. Much closer viewing could be found by entering the Conservation Area and viewing from the Island.

Last night at about 7:30pm a small group of us had a pair of White Pelicans
lift off the water and fly overhead while we were on The Island at Guelph
Lake Conservation Area...definitely a very uncommon sighting on the lake,
and a good-looking pair of birds! Hopefully they stay around for a bit.
Observers were Chris Earley, Jiffy Gibson, Jenn Bock, Dav Nemethy-Fekete
>From HWY 401, take the Hanlon Pkwy (HWY 6) north to Guelph. Follow it to
