"A PELICAN??!! There was a very odd sight in Langenburg last Thursday as a pelican dropped in for a prolonged visit. The large white bird first drew a lot of attention standing in an open field south of Carl Avenue near Wallace Enterprises but then moved on to the nearby creek where, after being shuffled off the street, it seemed to be making itself at home for the night. One person felt the bird was old and/or sick which explained why it was so listless even with interested people getting very close to see this odd visitor to the middle of the prairies. However it had moved on by the next morning."
