“So long,” he was saying…
This is a great picture of a wing, but not every picture comes out as I would like. However, it is a good shot of the wing markings for a Northern White Pelican. When they swim, they look all white.
The Northern White Pelicans are smaller than the Brown Pelicans. They are a fresh water pelican that likes to hang out in the San Luis Reservoir. These pelicans are kinda hard to see from shore because they stay up close to the dam…away from people. But if you can get a good look at them you’d find them to be beautiful birds…and very graceful when flying and landing in the water.
Check out Northern White Pelicans to see what they look like on the water.
