Goose Lake welcomes visitors

Hi everyone,

Two days ago we had visitors I’ve not seen around here before: three white pelicans. This is a terrible picture but it was the best I could do with my phone camera. My thanks to neighbor Juli Moseley for sending me an alert.

A few weeks ago we counted fifteen cormorants that stopped by. More recently an osprey has checked us out a few times. Haven’t see any seagulls this year but we nearly always see a few from time to time. I wonder if we need to check the saline balance in our lake. This is southwest Missouri, people!
