Pelican Landing at Carseland Weir

The Carseland Weir was established to help control the flow of the Bow River near Carseland. Because of the fishing and gathering areas around the weir, a desirable habitat has been provided for Double-crested Cormorants, gulls, terns, and American White Pelicans. My photo shows an American White Pelican about to land in the turbulent water in front of the weir.
