Pelican twins

A couple of big Brown Pelican chicks at Bird Island the other day, with an adult nearby.

Brown Pelican chicks remain in the nest for 77-84 days. I’m guessing these two are near the end of that time.

I saw two sets of twins that day.

Bird Island can be very busy during the nesting season of Wood Storks and other birds, late winter through spring. It’s quiet now and a nice place to raise the next generation of Pelicanus occidentalis.

Pelicans, Bird Island, the fishy waters of the Indian River Lagoon, and September’s towering cu.
