American White Pelican @ Lake Shaokatan, MN
I'm not sure when this video was taken, but it's from Lake Shaokatan, MN. I hope you enjoy it and some additional information from the Sibley Bird Book below. Thank you!
American White Pelican
Immense, always white with black flight feathers and pinkish or yellow-orange bill. All are fish-eating waterbirds with four toes joined by webbing.
Voice: Generally silent away from breeding grounds. At nest, utters quiet, low grunting or croaking sounds. Young give whining grunt or weak, sneezy bark.
