Brown Pelicans

Do you know what the white stuff in bird poop is?

That’s bird poop, too!

Interesting Fact: Pelicans incubate their eggs with the skin of their feet, essentially standing on the eggs to keep them warm. In the mid-twentieth century the pesticide DDT caused pelicans to lay thinner eggs that cracked under the weight of incubating parents. After nearly disappearing from North America in the 1960s and 1970s, Brown Pelicans made a full comeback thanks to pesticide regulations.

  1. Brown pelicans are such cool birds. I’m glad that changes were made to pesticide use which helped the pelicans make a comeback. I always am grateful to those people who see something wrong happening and raise awareness so that there is the chance to fix things.

  2. Great shot. I am sure you posted it just before I posted my Tampa shots of pelicans just to make me look amateur! πŸ™‚
