American White Pelican

We see these birds during the winter months out at a major lake in our area. They are neat to watch as they soar through the sky. We love their black tipped wings and pure white bodies. We also find the unique shape of their bill to be pretty interesting. Certainly a fun bird to see while exploring out at the lake.

Click on any of the pictures below to see them full size.
