Pelican Release

20 pelicans to be released by the Wildlife Center of Texas...At Mc Hale Park, Seabrook Texas

I was pleasantly surprised at the last minute..I logged onto Facebook to catch up with family, friends and news yesterday, which was Friday evening ..I saw a Wildlife Center of Texas notice about an event..About a pelican release..To happen today..This morning..This is their link :-)
So many pelicans had been injured in the last several months, more than 100.. By fish hooks and trash found in the bay..
Today 20 pelicans that were well enough to fend for themselves were released..I apologize, I could not get these pics to upload or be fixed in chronological order..
Seeing their release made my heart sing!

"Ahh, wind beneath my wings!"

"We stick together!"

"Off we go!"

"Ahh this place seems familiar!'
"I'm confused!"

Linking up with       Friday Finds


  1. This is a wonderful story! (And pics)

  2. Wow, what a wonderful project. Love the emotion the last little guy shows.

  3. That is such a great thing to do. I'm glad that they are well enough to be released. It's sad that they were injured in the first place.

  4. How wonderful to have been able to witness this!!! Years ago we witnessed the release of harbor seals back into the ocean. It was done through the Marin Mammal Center where I am a member. It was unforgettable - just like "your" pelicans.

  5. Great story and beautiful photography ~ Love the pelicans!

    Happy Week to you,
