American white pelicans are often found in groups. Here they are seen feeding together, foraging in shallow water. When landing, they spread their wings & slide on their feet, sending up sprays of water. Finally, they are larger than the other Norther American pelican, the brown pelican.
These winter residents were spotted feeding on a freshwater lake.
