“Did Someone Say Fish?” – American White Pelican in Springtime

American White Pelican

American White Pelican Pelecanus erythrorhynchos

Every spring, before pelicans start nesting, they congregate in the creeks and shallow bays where fish are spawning, in order to replenish their energy stores.

This image is a pelican landing on the water for “refuelling” after spring migration.

Photo captured by Nikon D300 – Nikkor AF-S 18-200mm 1:3.5 – 5.6G ED
