Pelicans Stick Around Longer Than Expected

The American White Pelicans that have taken to the lake behind the KXEO Radio Station have decided to stick around longer than normal.

According to Audrain County Conservation Agent, Norman Steelman, the cold weather in Mid-Missouri and further north have caused a delay in their migration.


The number of pelicans seems to be increasing as the colder weather is causing them to stop along their typical migration.

It is unknown how long the birds will stay in the area.
