On January 20, 2017 Deb & I were at one of our favorite wildlife refuges for photographing wildlife, especially large birds. Of course, we are referring to the Saint Marks National Wildlife Refuge located on the Gulf of Mexico south of Tallahassee, Florida. While there one of the areas we always check out is close to the lighthouse where there is a parking lot area. From there one can walk down a "lane-like" section of land dividing a lagoon from the gulf. In the gulf is a row of old pier posts. The pier wasted away long ago and only the posts are still grounded in the salt water earth. This is where many birds of all sizes sometime perch. One can usually find Brown Pelicans, Sea Gulls along with other type birds perched on these posts. This Brown Pelican (scientific name is Pelcanus Occidentalis) image was captured while perched on one of those posts while trying to hold on as the wind was high that day. This, of course, accounts for the title we gave this image. Now for a few interesting facts about brown pelicans.
The Brown Pelican is a comically elegant bird with an oversized bill, sinuous neck, and big, dark body. Squadrons glide above the surf along southern and western coasts, rising and falling in a graceful echo of the waves. They feed by plunge-diving from high up, using the force of impact to stun small fish before scooping them up. They are fairly common today, which is an excellent example of a species recovery from pesticide pollution that once placed them at the brink of extinction
