A White Christmas

Well, maybe not quite the kind of white Christmas that you might be thinking about - but it works for me.
Seen today at Ding Darling - lots of White Pelicans.

The American White Pelican is much bigger than our Brown Pelican - 12" longer, wing span is 24" wider - It does not dive for food but dips bill into the water while swimming and do so with others....a true team effort. They are snow birds and start arriving by mid October to early November. Usually found in flocks.
