There's a large flock of American White Pelicans that live around here and they've been fishing for the past couple days on and off right out from the trailer. They forage cooperatively in groups (unlike the brown pelican, which dives spectacularly from the air for its meals) and their wing span can get up to 9.5 feet (!!!!)
This morning I was standing in the doorway taking a photo of one and I said "I wish more of the white pelicans would come eat over here" and no sooner did I get the last word out and a dozen more flew in to join. Thanks for listening, white pelicans!
Cool, aren't they?
Oh yeah, and this one egret shot should probably go in this post too.
