"The Bashful Pelican"

"The Bashful Pelican"

Description: With his webbed feet pointing inward and his bill tucked in, this Brown Pelican had a bashful look. Yet he also seems to have a hidden smile. I’ve always thought that Brown Pelicans are one of the most enjoyable birds to watch, with an awkward beauty all their own.

Common Name: Brown Pelican
Scientific Name: Pelecanus occidentalis
