Captured at the Florida Keys Wild Bird Center, a rescue for injured and orphaned wild birds ranging from hawks to parrots to …. pelicans!
This is a brown pelican that was once treated at the center, who returns frequently to visit. He’s standing on a coral rock just off-shore from the center in the Gulf of Mexico.
