Single White Pelican

American White Pelicans tend to feed in groups, probably gaining an advantage of any fish their neighbor stirs up.

I believe the rougher water beyond the bird is deeper and has some flow as it heads into a canal.

His feeding style was more scooping along the water surface, and less plunging of his full head.
