Pelican Take-Off Key Largo Florida (pelecanus-occidentalis)
Viewed 814 times
The entire Pelican colony launches into Take-Off at Key Largo Florida (pelecanus-occidentalis). Brown Pelicans feed on mid-sized fish that they capture by diving from above and then scooping or dipping the fish into their pouch, which acts as a flexible dip net. Although they do feed on anchovies and sardines most of their prey has little commercial value.
