Pre breeding plumage. The head has turned to a creamy yellow.
Spotted on the Gulf coast near the Gulf State Park Pier in Gulf Shores, Alabama.
Thank you Ashley for the nomination. Thank you Neil for your kind words.
Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!
I don't think I've seen anything other than a white pelican, let alone a brown one. They're handsome birds. Great spotting, Brian.
