PIC OF THE WEEK: 10/31/11 • PREVIOUS WEEKNEXT WEEKALL 2011 PICS

Bird Pic Of The Week

Brown Pelican

(Pelecanus occidentalis)

Where: Outer Banks, NC • Pea Island National WIldlife Refuge (NWR)

Notes: Any chance I have to get to North Carolina's outerbanks I jump at, even if it means camping alone with the wind and sand. This mid-summer trip did not disapoint. The first day there was a large flock of these magnificent birds working the waters just outside of the breakers. There must have been a school of fish close into short that day, because there were pelicans circling and diving almost constantly for most of the day. This provided ample opportunity to attempt to capture a few action shots. I have always admired these creatures for their ability to effortlessly glide inches over the surf, as this bird is doing, even as the waves constantly change and roll toward the shore.
