Beautiful pic. It hardly looks real. The sky and the bird are perfect together.

Ava is correct about the brown pelican. Ali, can we kindly remind you to check for distribution before making an ID suggestion. Thank you.

What a very cool pelican. Looks like a character in Finding Nemo. HA!

This can't be a brown pelican as the brown pelican is a New World bird.
