BATON ROUGE - They're back! The cooler weather has brought white pelicans back to the LSU lakes, about two weeks earlier than their arrival last year.
News 2's Bess Casserleigh captured some amazing footage of the pelicans flying over the capital city.
But the birds haven't landed on the water just yet.
