Five superb photos of American White Pelicans from our galleries

American White Pelican was recently the subject of a fascinating article in The Passenger Pigeon, the excellent journal of the Wisconsin Society for Ornithology. The bird breeds primarily in the north-central and western United States and in western and central Canadian provinces, but it’s not staying put. Since 1994, it’s been moving eastward, as you can read here.

The five photos below are from our U.S. and Canada Gallery.
