    Off the list

    On November 11, the American brown pelican was removed from the endangered species list. A great success story for a species once devastated by DDT, habitat loss and hunting (for the feathers).

    Browns are charismatic and seem readily available for a photograph, especially during the winter breeding months when the colors on the adults truly come alive as seen here.

    Fall visitors

    During late summer through early spring, brown pelicans visit our corner of Southern California. Pelicans remind me so much of pterosaurs. I find it amazing they can fly (and very well too) with those great beaks.
