White Pelicans in a Blue Sky

We get plenty of brown pelicans year round in Florida, but occasionally, we get white ones, as well. This was part of a large migratory  flock at  the lighthouse recently. They were on their way back to Utah where they spend their summers. Brown pelicans dive for their fish, dropping from the sky with more splash than grace. White pelicans fish cooperatively, herding  fish into their group to feed on them.
