The brown pelican is an interesting bird. They can fly great distances, dive from great heights to catch fish near the surface of water, float like a boat, and even travel short distances under water.
I stopped at the beach today to photograph pelicans. I was rewarded with a bonus when this osprey appeared. www.orangutanairman.com
Wading Bird Rookery from Ronald Coleman on Vimeo. St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park http://www.alligatorfarm.com Native herons, egrets, ibis, spoonbills and wood storks seek the security of the Alligator Swamp to roost and raise their young. With hundreds of alligators swimming beneath the oak branches, the birds know their young are safe from tree-climbing predators. The wooden walkway allows for incredibly intimate views of Florida’s magnificent wading birds on their nests.
