California Brown Pelicans are a large bird that display grace in flight far beyond their size. A group of pelicans has many collective nouns, including a “brief”, “pod”, “pouch”, “scoop”, and “squadron” of pelicans. I found this pelican fishing with a “squadron,” near Castle Rock National Wildlife Reserve, near Crescent City, California USA.
