The American White Pelican is a big bird especially in flight. I want to get a photo of one flying but every time I see this, it takes my breath a way and I forget about the camera. They can have a wingspan of 9 feet! We have many of them at the Baylands and this guy was hanging out early one morning fishing, lazily scooping up the fish while swimming along the slough.
