Brown Pelican

Posted by
B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 15 January 2020 in Animal & Insect.

Brown Pelicans feed by plunging into the water, stunning small fish with the impact of their large bodies and scooping them up in their expandable throat pouches. When not foraging, pelicans stand around fishing docks, jetties, and beaches or cruise the shoreline.
