Brown Pelicans continue to stream by - always a wonderful sight!
Brown Pelicans are migrating north, flying in formation just off coastal bluffs. Paul Brewer recently photographed a beautiful Pelican and has kindly shared his photo with us.
There is something about Brown Pelicans that makes your heart sing. Is it their recovery from the disastrous effects of DDT? Is it their grace in the air? Is it the way they use air currents to skim the bluffs? Their big beak? Perhaps it is all of the above. I can tell you one thing - we love the Brown Pelicans that grace us with their presence this time of year!
