The brown pelican is about four feet in length. It has a brown and gray body, and a white head with a light brown crown. Its neck is dark brown during breeding season. Young pelicans are all brown. The brown pelican has a very long gray bill with a large pouch of skin.

This is a fantastic shot of the pelican, Hisam. The details are very sharp, and the lighting on it is great. Beautiful colors too. Well done. ; )

A fantastic capture with perfect focus. I love the reflection in the water. This really makes me want a telephoto lens for my camera!



This is the best Brown Pelican I've seen! I would like to ask for your permission to use this Pelican image for an educational sign I am working on for Lake Merritt Wildlife Refuge, Oakland CA. The signage will be to educate people on the migrating birds of Pacific Flyway that can be sighted at Lake Merritt. I can include a small credit line if you donate this usage. Please let me know if you need compensation. Please contact me at [email protected] at your earliest opportunity. Thanks
