Geocache Description:

This is an easy suburban cache. You can drive to within a few feet but you will enjoy it more if you park on the pavement and walk to the cache.

Notice - You won't see many birds in the winter so come back in the spring, summer, or fall.

A wonderful bird is the pelican
His bill will hold more that his belican.
He can take in his beak food enough for a week,
But I'm damned if i can see how the helican

Dixon Lanire Merrith in his poem "The Pelican" (1910)

We moved to Reno in 2002 and expected to find a desert. Instead we discovered a wonderful outdoors playland. We love the close proximity to the mountains and the river. One of our nicest discoveries was that the wetlands near our home contain some amazing and surprising creatures. One of our best discoveries was “Alexander Lake” which is on the North East corner of the Double Diamond Ranch housing development. We were pleased to find the abundance of water birds there including White Pelicans, Great Egrets, and White-Faced Ibis.

This is not a themed cache. We decided to use this cache for all the non-reptiles that end up in our “Don’t Tread on Me” cache on Rattlesnake mountain. Please take and leave whatever you want. There are some pictures and articles about the pelicans for you to read. Enjoy the area.
