"American White Pelicans" Padre Island Things to Do Tip by Stephen-KarenConn
Padre Island Things to Do: 12 reviews and 27 photos
We couldn't help but take a picture of these White Pelicans because it is so unusual for us to see them, especially close enough to take a picture. Their cousins, the Brown Pelicans are fairly common along much of the southeastern Atlantic Coast, but these Whites are normally birds of the West, many spending their summers in the Great Plains and Rocky Mountain areas, all the way up into Saskatchawan and Alberta. In winter a few can be seen along parts of the Gulf Coast and the tip of Florida.
Directions: These American White Pelicans were spotted on Laguna Madre Bay, between North Padre Island and the Mainland.
