White Pelicans

 

Every winter the white pelicans come back to The Villages to hang out on some of our ponds.  They are fun to photograph and watch.  Unlike their brown pelican cousins who dive for their dinner, these guys use their pouched bills to scoop up fish.  Often you can spot them huddled together in a circle to herd the fish into one spot, which makes for easy pickings.
