I often mention how acrobatic a Brown Pelican can be. Well, here is one in action.

Below a Pelican noticed a school of fish (or other Pelicans that noticed too). A quick turn of the head and he started to bank left.

In the following photographs you can see how the bird easily changes flight and goes right into the dive.

He was much faster than me. By the time I was ready for the dive…he was already under water.

Very impressive.
