Looking at pelicans

Brown Pelican on a seawall in Sewall’s Point.

They are big birds, but the smallest of the six pelican species of the world.

This one is banded and has a bit of fishing wire wrapped around a toe. I couldn’t get a shot of the markings on the band.

A pelican nearby, without a band, looking at me but right past me. It seems like we look into their eyes but birds do not look into ours.
