Immature Brown Pelican

Cedar Key, Florida

Brown Pelican

We had just canoed and hiked around Atsena Otie Key, just off Cedar Key, Florida. This pelican was waiting for us when we returned. Since it posed so beautifully, Nancy just had to take its picture. By their third year, Brown Pelicans (Pelecanus occidentalis) develop a white neck and blackish belly.

This new world pelican can be found from New Jersey south along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts to the mouth of the Amazon River. In the Pacific, it can be found from British Columbia to northern Chile, including the Galapagos Islands. P.o. carolinensis is the one on the Atlantic north of Panama.
