Pelicans are fascinating birds. I love how they dive into the water to catch a fish or how they hang around beaches keeping an eye on fishermen, hoping for a handout. Or just sitting quietly and serenely on a post or boat.
Here’s the scoop on the birds that scoop up fish! Pelicans are a genus of large water birds that make up the family Pelecanidae. They are characterized by a long beak and a large throat pouch used for catching prey and draining water from the scooped-up contents before swallowing. The bills, pouches, and bare facial skin of all species become brightly colored before the breeding season. The eight modern pelican species have a patchy global distribution, ranging latitudinally from the tropics to the temperate zone, though they are absent from interior South America and from polar regions and the open ocean.
