American White Pelican Photos

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite: I absolutely love American White Pelicans. One of my favorite parts about spring is the arrival of the pelicans, particularly when you see them in flight, with flocks of massive, slowly circling and banking birds that seem to be having fun and making the most out of spring migration. My favorite American White Pelican photo is from April 2013, of a bird in gorgeous breeding condition, taking flight along the edge of a small wetland.
