American White Pelican @ Lake Shaokatan, MN

Updated on May 20, 2016

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

Pelecanus erythrorhynchos

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.
