Pelican Feeding

Still no oil here. I was on the Fort Desoto fishing pier last weekend and watched this beautiful pelican fishing for a while. He seemed to be keeping to himself and doing this weird looking down thing that I've never seen a pelican do before. Not sure if there was something wrong with his eyesight. He seemed to be catching the fish though. Below is one of the type of fish he was diving for. The water around the pier is full of bait fish.


  1. Oh wow, those pelican shots are beautiful. I especially love the second shot. The tilt of the head is wonderful!

  2. There were all kinds of birds wandering around Pine Island yesterday. The water was so hot I bet they were getting a warm meal whenever they dived.
