pelicans are the smallest members of the pelican family at 42 to 54
inches long, weighing 8 - 10 pounds, and with a 6 1/2- to 7 1/2-foot
wingspan. In March and April two or three white eggs are laid (hatching
approximately 30 days) with first flight in 75 days. Late winter adult
pelicans sport the white head breeding plumage. Summer molts result
in all pelicans having the all-brown feathers of juvenile birds. The
brown pelican skydives ( from 60 - 70 feet ) after fish for food .
Pelicans have changed little in the last 30 million
years. After DDT was banned (1972) the Eastern brown pelican began to
recover and by 1985 the bird was not endangered in the Atlantic, Florida
and Alabama part of it's range. However, the brown pelican remains on
the federal endangered species list in the Pacific Coast portion of
its range, and in Central and South America. The prospects for these
friendly 'fishermen of the sea' should continue to improve as long as
there are shorelines for undisturbed shorebird breeding colonies and
uncontaminated fish to dive after in the sea.
