CHANNAHON – Dale Lockwood submitted photos taken April 10 of a group of American white pelicans resting and feeding in the I & M canal in Channahon.

In an email, Lockwood wrote, “These birds are annual visitors to this area. The American white pelicans like to come together in groups of a dozen or more birds to feed, as they can thus cooperate and corral fish to one another.”
