This American White Pelican was sitting in the middle of Garnett Lake in Lake County, Florida with a flock of Cormorants, which are diving birds.   All of these birds were fishing for small fish, frogs or turtles.   This large lake is around  several other lakes, the Dead River, the Haynes Creek Canal and lock, the Dora Canal, and Lake Eustis.  I took these pictures on April 25, 2014 from the deck of a pontoon boat which my friends so kindly invited me to set sail on for a day-long boat ride and photo extravaganza!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. Beautiful pictures!

  2. Those are great pictures. He looks huge compared to the other birds!

    • Hi Montucky, Yes, the White Pelicans seem bigger than their brown brethren. I think when compared to the Cormorants, yes, the pelicans were absolutely huge! Have a wonderful day today.

  3. great shots. and even better – a day on the pontoon!

    • Hi Theresa, Thanks! Yes, our friends were so generous to invite us for the all-day boat trip though many scenic Central Florida spots. Have a great Tuesday tomorrow!

  4. Love seeing the white Pelicans… They are so much prettier than the brown ones I think….

    Glad you had such great day on the boat.
    Hugs,

    • Hi Betsy, Yes, the White Pelicans are lovely birds. I had seen a small flock of them on Lake St. George in the Glade when I lived there – that was a first for that lake. Unusual migration that year. But, who knows, maybe White Pelicans will come your way once again next year. Have a tremendous week and I hope you will be feeling great soon!

  5. Wonderful shots of the pelican! The boat ride sounds like fun, I assume you took a lot of photos. Have a happy week!
