Default Pelican feeding

I saw this Brown Pelican making a dive from the air into the water and seemingly came up with something in his mouth. He then swallowed it and jumped up from the water to make another run.

Nice Pelican pics. We have the Brown Pelican here as well.

A wonderful bird is the Pelican.
His beak can hold more than his belly can.
He can hold in his beak
Enough food for a week!
But I'll be darned if I know how the hellican?

This is one bird I haven't shot yet, so now I have to go out and shoot one. Thanks for the incentive.

Thanks! This pictures didn't come out as sharp as I wanted because I use AI Servo instead of AI Focus.

Florida probably has more wildlife than California especially tropical species which we don't have here.
