BIG BIRD — Chris Warren of Obion caught a probably injured pelican Saturday in Obion. His spouse, Angie, informed The Messenger the attractive fowl couldn’t fly very excessive and will have been harm. She mentioned wildlife officers had been contacted and got here to choose up the massive yellow-billed fowl. The American White Pelican is without doubt one of the largest birds in North America with its nine-foot wingspan. Regionally, Reelfoot Lake State Park hosts a Pelican Pageant each October to mark the birds’ migration alongside the Mississippi River and their stopover on the lake to feed.
