Today on the canyon road halfway between Yakima and Ellensburg more than 5 cars at any given time stopped for a rather unusual site. A flock of 20 white pelicans gathered for a nice dip in the Yakima River. More members of the flock continued to come in for a landing. A few of the local fowl also joined in the river party. Seems the lack of spring weather isn't keeping these inhabitants from taking advantage of a Saturday afternoon.
