Brown Pelican Portrait

Close view of a Brown Pelican against blue water and sky (SandraCalderbank, sandra calderbank)
These Pelicans are so pretty and colorful but they are almost comical with their huge bill. They dive head first for their food and can dive into the water from as high as 65 feet! They can hold 2.5 gallons of water in their throat pouch. Seems a pretty efficient way to eat.
