Every October these white Pelicans from Canada migrate to this small village in central Mexico. They stay until March. The village is Petatan – located on Lake Chapala – in the state of Jalisco.

Visit Lake Chapala, Ajijic and the surrounding communities – including those on the “other side” of the lake from Ajijic and Chapala.

The Petatan Pelicans of Lake Chapala

A journey to the other side of Lake Chapala…to encounter the amazing Pelicans of Petatan. These are white Pelicans from Canada that migrate to the waters surrounding this small isthmus village – each year. They reside here between late October and March every year. The music that accompanies the video was LIVE via the restaurant PA system where the video was captured. ENJOY!!! Take a day or 2 or 3 and drive from Ajijic or Chapala and visit the wonderful towns and villages on the south shore of Lake Chapala…It’s marvelous…

Wildlife Photography by Bill Dahl

Over the past 15 years I have been fortunate to capture images of wildlife in their natural habitat. There are NO zoo, domestic or farm animals contained in this Photo album. The images were captured in the Pacific Northwest, Montana, eastern Idaho, Utah, Wyoming and Colorado – The American West. Yes – there are some trout, fly and salmon fishing images in this album. Of course – a few of Reggie and me – as well as a few sunsets.

 

DO NOT view on a damn cell phone.

 

NOTE: A number of these images have been captured in the  “beyond” of the Tetons and Rockies – Grizzly bear country – DO NOT venture out into these areas ( even to “fish” or a “short hike”) without a large caliber hand gun, firearm license for that State, marine/compressed air horn, binoculars, and bear spray…there is rarely such a thing as a “close call” with a Grizzly…don’t take chances – be safe…it’s the ONLY time I EVER possess or carry a firearm. The aforementioned is not an opinion – it is by virtue of years of experience “out there.” It’s common sense. Predator images, as well as elk, mountain sheep, mountain goats, and moose – were captured using a professional L series Canon 70-200 mm USM II f2.8 telephoto lens with a 2 X Canon extender (with camera crop factor – shooting at 640 mm ) – translation: well over 100 yards away – and may have been cropped in post-production to zoom in further on the creature(s). Don’t approach wildlife – they’re wild – you’re an intruder – a potential threat – and – food. You simply cannot safely capture these images on a cell phone or with a compact digital camera in the wild. Don’t try it. Again, be safe. Be respectful of creatures where they live. I am. So is Reggie.
