Pelecanus occidentalis

It’s True!

  • Of the seven species of pelican, only the brown nose-dives from flight, plunging directly into the sea to scoop up fish.
  • The large throat pouch that so easily identifies pelicans can hold up to 3 gallons of water, brimming with small fish.
  • Seagulls are often seen sitting on top of a pelican’s head, waiting to steal a bite from the pelican’s fish-filled pouch.
  • Once in decline from exposure to DDT pesticide, brown pelican populations are now recovering in marine sanctuaries.
