Pelicans Taking a Rest @ Horseshoe Lake

Spotted -- American White Pelicans - migrating along the Mississippi River flyway. They took a break this week at Horseshoe Lake.  Just downstream from Memphis on the Arkansas side of the River, it's an oxbow lake that was once a meander of the Mississippi River. The "horseshoe" is easy to recognize on the model of the River at Mud Island River Park.
