White Pelican

These are not as common in Florida as the Brown Pelican.  The Audubon web site says that they have wingspans of up to 9 feet and instead of diving for fish will cooperate with other White Pelicans by getting together and driving fish to shallow water, where they will scoop them up.  They look impressive when you see them flying in groups.
