The rare and beautiful white pelicans of Bird Island, Georgia.
Created almost 10 years ago to provide refuge for all species of migrating birds, Bird Island is located off the coast of Jekyll Island. It replaces shrinking bird habitats with one protected from raccoons and other prey.
To the surprise of the birding experts, these White Pelicans which are normally seen in the Great Lakes Region have found their way to this tiny Georgia island. Each year the population grows and several are staying year round.
Like the tourists, I guess they know they found a welcome home on the Golden Isles.
Make sure to make a boat tour with Cap Fendig part of your vacation experience. It is the best way to see this special island.
