Brown Pelicans have begun migrating northward.

One of my favorite birds, Brown Pelicans have been seen riding the thermals along the coastline. Richard Hansen photographed the returning adults.

Adult Brown Pelicans have white heads and brown underparts. The juveniles with their brown heads and white underparts will be seen once they have grown strong enough to undertake the migration.

Thanks to Richard for allowing me to share his photo with you here.
