We had quite a few brown pelicans fishing in the marsh this afternoon.
Here is an adult doing a hopping lift off, then about five minutes later this juvenile came flying in. Although they are called ‘brown pelicans’ only the young ones are truly brown. As adults they get a white and yellow head and brighter colored wing feathers.
They are a lot of fun to watch as they splash and dive their way back and forth along the water’s edge.
