PIC OF THE WEEK: 03/12/12 • PREVIOUS WEEKNEXT WEEKALL 2012 PICS

Bird Pic Of The Week

White Pelican

(Pelecanus erythrorhynchos)

Where: Sebastian, FL • Indian River (Intercostal Waterway)

Notes: Sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. When I think of how often I have traveled great distances, or spent hour upon hour searching for a particular species, or watched a single bird for a long period of time. I have found that all I have to do is be more patient than the bird itself. This time being the exception, this photo came comically easy. My friend Paul and I were starting our return trip home from a week long photo trip to Florida. That beautiful sunny day we had stopped at a restaurant we had discovered the night before. Since it was so nice out we decided to take an outdoor, waterside table. Once we had ordered, we noticed a man cleaning fish on the boat dock located just behind the eatery. Suddenly pelicans came from several directions to partake in the fish scraps. This was a species we had seem a flock of about a hundred birds at Merritt Island, but had failed to have any real close-up opportunities. This shot was literally taken from the table while we ate our lunch. Take a bit, click off a couple of shots, eventually my sandwich got cold. What a way to end an excellent adventure. "One for the road," you might say.
