Percy Priest Lake, Fall Creek Rec. Area, Rutherford Co. TN
The large flock of American White Pelicans was seen again this afternoon.
Viewing from the Lamar Hill Rd. side of the lake, no pelicans were seen at
first, but a few appeared, then a group of 40. They were fishing
successfully; more joined in, coming from upstream and eventually numbered
over 300, and worked their way down-lake. They may use a herding technique
as a group to herd fish. Also seen: 30 Sandhill Cranes.
