Brown Pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis)

Hans Suter WMA, Texas, November 13, 2017.

Mosquera Islet, Galapagos, Eucador, June 11, 2019.

First ebirded in Panama, July 31, 2010 (though I'm sure I saw some growing up in Florida).

We've also seen them in New Orleans, Cuba, Texas, Ecuador, and Costa Rica.

And, on January 16, 2021, we caught a glimpse of one in the Hudson River near home.
