[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The adult pelican is a large, dark gray-brown water bird with white around the head and neck. Adult pelicans can reach up to eight pounds or larger with wingspans of over seven feet.

Brown pelicans nest in colonies mostly on small coastal islands. The nests are usually built in trees but ground nesting also does occur.

Brown pelicans are long-lived, one bird aged at 31 years.

Sochirca, Well captured with good quality DOF, Sharpness and detail. Pitty we do not see the head/face of the middle one.
Greetings, Jan

Sochirca, Great post with good sharpness & details seen! Too bad we can't always get em' to pose the way we might like for the shot..Good job!

Interesting selection of poses, the picture would be improved if either the centre birds eyes could be see or if the bird on the left was complete. Otherwise great work.
