What kind of bird is this?

I tried to lighten this one...please click to enlarge and get a better view.


We saw these on the Mississippi...I first thought pelican and then I thought no. I really don't know their range. Then I have just been checking out the internet a little and still undecided. So, tell me what you think they are.

Rose, I think that's a really good idea. We could just post an announcement on our pages for anyone who wants to participate. It would be interesting to see the differences!

BTW - they look like pelicans to me, that's what I would call them if I saw them in my back yard.

I'd say you're right, they're White Pelicans.

I'd say pelicans...but I've only seen pelicans in pictures. ;-)

My first thought was pelican, so if that is what everyone else thinks, I will stick with it. I'm really not sure....don't see many pelicans :-) Nice shots, even from a distance.

Pelican would be my choice. Fine action shots.

My first reaction was pelican and since there are many varieties it very well could be.
Nice action shots.

As a resident of Louisiana, I assure you that these are pelicans. Hard to tell, but they may actually be our state bird, the brown pelican.
