The brown pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis) is a unique bird that can be spotted along coasts and in estuaries throughout the United States and Mexico. Unlike other species of pelicans, the brown pelican prefers to wade in shallow waters rather than dive for food. With its iconic wingspan and dark brown feathers, the brown pelican has become an identifiable symbol of coastal life in many areas.
