Pelicans land on Portage Lake for the holiday
Over Memorial Day weekend, a flock of pelicans started gathering on Portage Lake.
"I counted a dozen this morning, said lake resident Marilyn Peterson on Wednesday. "My husband has counted as many as 18."
The Petersons said it's been a couple years since they've seen pelicans. The American White Pelicans are somewhat sporadic visitors, the couple maintains.
