Brown Pelican

Sarasota, Florida

Scientific name: Pelecanus occidentalis

The Brown Pelican occurs on both coasts in the Americas. On the Atlantic Coast and Gulf Coast they distribute from Nova Scotia to Venezuela, and to the mouth of the Amazon River. On the Pacific Ocean they are found from British Columbia to south central Chile, and including the Galapagos Islands

Birds migrate to, and nest in, South America during the North American winter, then move in flocks further north along the coasts.
