American White Pelicans return to Placida Harbor, Florida

The American White Pelicans (Pelecanus erythrorhynchos) have returned to Placida Harbor, Florida for the winter.

One of America's largest birds, and much larger than the common Brown Pelican, the American Whites breed only on North America's inland prairies, but winter on the southern coast.

A great place to get a close-up view is Placida Harbor....near the Fishery Restaurant.
 
 

 

 
They will be here all winter, so stop by and see them....and visit the quaint little harbor with some interesting shops.
