Pelicans, Both White And Brown

Here's some birds you don't see too often here in Florida. These white pelicans are visitors from up north, where they tend to live in fresh water, not salt. But I guess they make an exception when they winter in Florida. I found these guys on a mud flat off the shore of Cortez, while I was on a little pontoon boat taking a tour today. (More on the tour boat later...) There were also lots of plain brown pelicans hanging out near the fish processing plant. I'm sure they get more than enough to eat around there.
