Dolphins Strand Feeding with Pelicans

Dolphins Strand Feeding: Pelican Audience

These Dolphins were strand feeding on the opposite side of the river, at least 300 feet (90 Meters) from where I was standing. The photos don’t have nearly the detail as my Dolphins Strand Feeding: Success post, but I thought it was quite interesting to see the process from a different angle.

Not to mention the Pelicans that were keen on seeing if they could nab a fish from all the action.

The Pelicans were following the Dolphins as they swam up and down the river. I didn’t see any fish this time but the Pelican on the left made a quick exit as if he had something he didn’t want to share.

    1. The cooperative work among the Dolphins to feed is quite something and interesting that the Pelicans have figured out how to take advantage. I was speaking with one of the survey volunteers who has watched this quite a bit. He said sometimes it seemed the Dolphins were following the Pelicans and sometimes vice-versa.

    1. Good eye, Jane! Thanks, it is amazing to watch. Sadly this summer as it has become quite popular to view some humans have been defying the law that protects the Dolphins while they are feeding as well as common sense. No doubt the animals will pay a price.
