Year Round Pelican

Lately all the attention has been on the visiting big White Pelicans. It’s easy since they move into the marshes where the Spoonbill, Wood Stork, and others are.

Right down the road, very close, are the Brown Pelicans. Being salt water birds they avoid marshes.

Personally I prefer them, much more character.

It doesn’t hurt that they tolerate people much better.

If you see a shrimp boat, you have Brown Pelicans.

  1. I saw only once a Brown Pelican, he landed in Northern Utah last year during October, he probably lost his way during migration. These Brown Pelicans are amazing! You created such beautiful photographs of them, Ted!
