A 12 foot wing span? Holy fruits!Reply
Very very cool!!! There’s a lot there I didn’t know.Reply
Wow – I lived in Florida for years and never learned any of that stuff!
We used to call pelicans the Florida Air Force, for the way they fly in formation just above the bridges and things. 😉
Fun stuff, btw.
I love watching them dive. Hehehe! Happy TT!Reply
Happy Thursday 13! Love the list and I have learned 13 things about pelicans that I really didn’t know until I read this post. Hope to see you at my 4th edition about Kerrelyn Sparks at Talk About My Favorite Authors blog.Reply
I love pelicans. I found out that babies have no idea why they’re diving in the water … they just imitate their parents until one day they get lucky and a fish ends up in their mouth. Then they’re like “oh, cool, I’ll do that again.” Some pelicans starve in the first year. (A bird naturalist told me that.)Reply
Thanks for the lesson – great facts.Reply
Pelicans are very cool birds. We don’t have them here in NZ.Reply

Some really cool facts here – 30 puunds – that’s a big pelican! And I didn’t know they’ve been around 40 million years – very cool. 🙂Reply
