"Brown Pelican"

by Richard Mittleman, MD

This image was made on the cliffs at La Jolla, CA. When not in breeding plumage Brown Pelicans are just that, pretty much brown. This bird is in prime breeding plumage with the sky blue eye (eye color often changes when a bird is in breeding plumage), red throat pouch and yellow head.
