Pelecanus occidentalis / Pelícano café Esta ave se alimenta de peces, lanzándose al mar y cuando este adentro abre su pico para agarrar su alimento. #ConoceYAmaTusAves 🐦💚 #pelecanusoccidentalis #pelicanocafe #brownpelican #ave #bird #avesdemexico #birdsofmexico #Manglares #pajareando #peninsuladeyucatan #mexico #cancun

This juvenile brown pelican was hanging out on the bank of the lagoon begging for food. Upon further inspection the caller noticed he had a badly broken wing. However, before we arrived he had taken off swimming into the lagoon and ended up resting at the bottom of a nearby dock. We quickly ran back to the ambulance, drove down to the dock and luckily were able to scoop him up! The brown pelican catches its food by diving on fish from above and catching them in its bill. So, this poor guy was probably unable to eat for awhile due to his broken wing which kept him from flying 😥 . . . . #brownpelican #pelican #pelicansofinstagram #birdsofinstagram #birds #birdrescue #rescuewildlife #floridawildlife #seabird #wildlifeemergency #animalrescue #floridabirds #pelecanidae

I used to think my #poweranimal was a great blue heron - gawky, awkward yet beautiful on the ground, immensely graceful in the air. But I think maybe I'm a brown pelican instead. Immensely gawky, weird, goofy, awkward yet also kind of amazing. Huge when it spreads its wings, powerful and smooth in flight, swift and pointed when it dives for what it wants. #brownpelican #spiritanimal #bothand #yogatherapist #pdxyogatherapist #openyogatherapy

Bird: Brown Pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis) 45-54” with a wingspan of 7 ft 6 in , very large & stocky bird , utters love grunts , prefers sandy coastal beaches, lagoons and waterfronts , the only non-white pelican in the world! . . .

Back in the day, I avoided centred compositions like the plague. Now, the concept of rules in art makes little sense to me. This Brown Pelican was photographed from a boat floating in the emerald waters off Englishman's Bay, go to @wildtobago and click the link in their bio to read the full account of us experiencing a familiar beach in a totally different way. Also, be on the lookout for two absolutely stunning images of the bay itself by @jokimhu within the article! This piece was published in the Tobago Newsday on Thursday. Fun fact: I've never secured a hard copy of any of my articles published in this paper. 🙈 #birdman #birdsofig #birding #birdwatching #birders #nanpapix #birder #Tobago #wildspaces #wildtobago #tobagolove #tobagototheworld #birdingparadise #pelican #pelicansofinstagram #brownpelican #birdsasart #boatlife #birdingfromaboat #pelagicbirding #oceantours #rugged #snorkelling #ecotourism #ecotours #sustainlife #birdyourworld #yearofthebird

Beautiful morning out on the water. We caught a ton of fish, saw a couple osprey and pelican, and now the kids are catching comb jellies. Yay for parents that have a boat! #floridafall #trout #mangrovesnapper #fishingwithkids #naturestudy #osprey #brownpelican

We watched these pelicans fish at sunset tonight. Must've been sushi happy hour. Dive after dive, just gulping the fish down one after another. 🌊🐟🙌 Swipe 👈 for more photos. #BrownPelican #Sunset #sunsetsofinstagram #surfcityusa #huntingtonbeach #orangecounty #california #canonphotography #canonpowershot #naturephotography

A juvenile Brown Pelican just after takeoff from the Bon Accord Lagoon. This area is at severe risk of being destroyed to construct two hotels and a golf course for Sandals Resorts International. While this species may not be severely affected, there will be hundreds of others that will be. The entire project is incredibly shortsighted, not only from a ecological point of view, but also an economic one. I agree that Tobago needs a boost in its tourism industry, but this is not the way. Linked in my bio is a petition against this project.

The California Brown Pelican was almost driven to extinction due to the use of DDT (a pesticide that was sprayed to kill mosquitos). It was listed as endangered in 1971 by the state of California. In 1972, the use of DDT was banned by the EPA. Since then, not only have brown pelicans made a great comeback, but so have osprey, bald eagles, and peregrine falcons. Something to think about next time you see those helicopters spraying the marsh with a new, "safer" pesticide.
