White Pelicans

Good Morning Pelicans

A flock of American White Pelicans was standing in a line as the sun came up over this shallow pond.  The water was not deep enough for them to dive for fish so I was expecting them to take off any minute to look for breakfast.

I positioned myself to hopefully catch them taking off. Instead, they quietly preened as a few Roseate Spoonbills and Wood Storks did the same.

They moved very little in the 90 minutes I was at this pond. Unfortunately they didn’t like it so much that they had repeated this routine when I returned a few days later.
