Great White Pelican

The Great White pelican lives in the shallow swamps in Africa and is one of the largest flying birds in the world.

This pelican’s yellow gular pouch has capacity for 13 liters of water or up to 4 kg of fish.

    We have Brown Pelicans here along the south central coast in California. At dawn and sunset, the Pelican Patrol flies in v-shaped formations as they move from the shore to wherever they want to roost.

    1. That sounds amazing! I loved to watch the pelicans when I was at the Pacific coast in Guatemala. It looked like so much fun when they were surfing the waves.
