Brown Pelicans In Flight

Brown Pelicans In Flight

As these birds were moving along following the fish with the tide I couldn’t help myself, I took an enormous number of flight shots.

Finally I took a break and moved further up the shore. Before I was finished I had filled my memory cards.

  1. Great job with the in-flight shots, Ted. Even with a relatively big target bird, it is not easy to keep them in frame and in focus (I know from experience, albeit not with pelicans). I especially love the final photo, which highlights the bird’s impressive wingspan.

    1. Thanks Mike. It was a good day 😀😀 with the big guys. They are mesmerizing some times LOL. So much so we are heading out later to the commercial shrimpers piers, find a few more if the tide is right 😀

  2. Last autumn the young Brown pelican visited our bird refuge, he lost his way. For two days I watched him and photographed. It was so unusual to see this bird where I live.
    Ted, these are astonishing photos of Brown pelicans! These birds are so beautiful in their flight!
