I love to watch these birds fish! Brown pelican ~ cool bird ♥ The first time one of these landed next to me, I thought it was a dinosaur.

Pelicans are a genus of large water birds comprising the family Pelecanidae. They are characterised by a long beak and large throat pouch used in catching prey and draining water from the scooped up contents before swallowing. ~Beautiful Birds~

"I call it" This pelican looks like lunch will drop right in his pouch. That is odd, because pelicans feed on fish, usually n a group, and usually there is a squabble or two. I like pelicans,particularly when they aren't posing for a formal portrait.
