Pelican Colony on Key Largo, Florida (Pelecanus occidentalis)
Thriving Pelican Colony on Key Largo, Florida behind the wounded bird sanctuary. These are mostly released injured birds. Fishing line is one of the biggest culprits in damaging our semi-tropical bird life. (Pelecanus occidentalis) Nesting is on islands by preference. On the Southeast coast, it is often in mangroves, where the birds build a rather flimsy nest of sticks, reeds, bones, and seaweed. On islands without predators, they often build on the ground in large colonies.
