The White Pelican is native to North America. American White Pelicans nests in colonies of several hundred pairs on islands in remote brackish and freshwater lakes of inland North America. They migrate through the St. Louis Missouri area each year and stay quite a while in the freshwater lake created by the Mississippi river and the series of locks and dams above stream from Alton Illinois, the area often called Alton lake
