Another favorite foto from the Lake Merritt ‘cool birds’ catalog. These three are white pelicans. Needless to say, they are a show unto themselves whenever they arrive on the scene. It could also be I feel that way because for me, they’re kinda new and exciting.
Their fishing methods, a dipping of the head underwater, surfacing to allow the water to stream out and hopefully keeping any captured fish, is a synchronized dance quite something to watch.
On a different day I actually managed to snap a few shots of these majestic birds taking wing and their huge wingspan is another reason to keep the camera at the ready.
Beautiful winter wildlife and an Oakland, California Lake Merritt showstopper without a doubt!
As with the previous post’s image, this trio is available in a variety of ways over at my FAA site.
