The White Pelican saga continues and we had a scare this morning!!
This was Pelly last night resting with his decoy buddy.
Last night I talked my grandson Xander into helping me catch minnows, we didn’t get many but Pelly loved them.
Builder Bob got up at 5am and checked on Pelly…..he was still here.
When we all got up at 7am he was gone. We looked all over, looking for tracks to see if a coyote or cat got him and couldn’t see any but….we could see where Pelly went down the steep side of the sand towards the water.
Then we remembered that the trains (behind our house) started running again the morning and the first one went by around 6am. It looked like Pelly got scared and swam away.
My brother and I got in his boat and started searching down river as we knew he couldn’t survive on his own. At the very end of our town we found him!
He is up on a pile of mud. There was a dog tied up about 25 feet from him, thankfully Pelly was okay.
I brought along a towel to cover his head (learned that from a bird rescue site) but he wasn’t scared at all.
Since he was all muddy we dropped him off and let him swim to shore for breakfast. I fed him and he crawled back up on our sand pile, we’ll have to watch what happens when the next train goes by. Once I get this posted it will be time to see if we can find some place to take Pelly.
