What a wingspan!

Yesterday, I showed you Mr Pelican, sedately gliding through the water. Today he decided to show his magnificent wing span, and I just managed to capture it before he took off.

About four feet in length, and with a wingspan of  up to 8 feet, the Brown Pelican is one of the best known and most prominent birds found in the coastal areas of the southern and western USA. I’m really happy that a couple of them have decided to visit my backyard this winter.
