Portrait of a Pelican

If you read my blog you know that one of favorite subjects is the pelican. The Florida Brown Pelican has a wingspan of up to nine feet and weighs 30 pounds. The white pelican is even larger and the second biggest bird in North America after the California Condor. They are actually bigger than the Bald Eagle and much more plentiful. I love these birds because in flight they look a little like Pterodactyls as they glide through the air. This one was actually nice enough to sit for a portrait.

  1. I love pelicans too! All birds, really. But watching these guys soar around next to me on my morning commute over the Howard Franklin makes me smile every single day. Great photo!
