American White Pelicans normally migrate in October from Alberta to the southern US and Mexico. One pelican (she has been named Elsa) did not migrate from Frank Lake in either 2020 or 2021, due to having an injured wing. Therefore, she had to spend the winter at Frank Lake.

Elsa has greatly improved her flying ability this winter, as compared to last winter. She has access to open water through the winter because of the pipeline. She eats fish, she watches for predators, she exercises, and she keeps herself warm by snuggling into her feathers.

In April 2022, Elsa was joined by others of her species. We will know, when the pelicans migrate, in October-November 2022, whether Elsa will be able to migrate also.
