Brown Pelicans are so much more interesting than the others. I think there is only one other type that dives from high to catch fish.
Above a Pelican pulls back to hover over the water watching a school of fish.
Once he picks out prey a quick turn and a dive. This was not a high dive the bird was maybe 15 feet above the surface.
A fast twist and the bird is down, head first.
However, it looked like a miss this time. He was up and going around for another try.
