Pelican Power by dove-51 Pelican Power by dove-51
It was such fun watching this group of pelicans fishing for minnows. Taken at the Fairford Dam in Manitoba, Canada

Note: These are "American White Pelicans"
Groups of foraging pelicans swim in formation, deliberately herding schools of fish into shallow water, from which the birds dip and scoop the prey with their bills. In a single scoop, a pelican can hold up to 12L of water, which must be drained from the sides of its mouth before swallowing its meal.
