White Pelicans

Previous Image Gallery Home Next Image
The White Pelican is a very large pelican. The White Pelican weighs 22 lbs and is 63 inches long with a 110 inch wingspan. It differs from the Dalmatian Pelican, the only larger species of pelican, by its pure white, rather than greyish-white, plumage, a bare pink facial patch around the eye and pinkish legs. Immature birds are grey and have dark flight feathers. In flight, it is an elegant soaring bird, with the head held close to and aligned with the body by a downward bend in the neck. Like the Dalmatian Pelican, this species has declined greatly through habitat loss and persecution.
