Pelican Cousins

We only have two types of Pelicans in North America.

Salt water birds are the Brown Pelican, the smaller of the two. However, a big Brown Pelican can be up to 5 feet long (1.5 meters) with a 7.5 foot (2.3 meter) wing span.

These two images were in the To Do file, so this is where they ended up. Didn’t want them to get lost.
