An amazing photo by Jeff Austin of the pouch of a Brown Pelican.

Oregonian Jeff Austin frequently visits the Mendonoma Coast. He noticed this Brown Pelican trying to get a fish in its pouch.

With the sun shining on the pouch, it's quite an amazing photo! Brown Pelicans plunge dive for fish and it's quite a sight to see them fishing. Here is one of my favorite photos of one plunge diving. It was taken by Patrick Killen.
