America White Pelican

Location: J. N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge Sanibel, Florida


        About the Photo

American White Pelican (Pelecanus erythrorhynchos) recognizable by it's almost entirely bright white plumage, except the black primary and secondary remiges (Flight feathers). These black feathers are only seen when in flight. Some days you just get lucky..... These two seemed to be looking for a photo op.
