Today's Bird: The Peruvian Pelican!

Today's bird is the Peruvian Pelican.  He looks a lot like the Pelicans we have here in South Texas (which are called Brown Pelicans), but he's a fair bit larger and stockier.  The place where I took this picture is called Pucusana.  It's a small fishing town off the coast of Peru, just south of Lima.  The town's fish processing and packaging center was loaded with Peruvian Pelicans and gulls trying to get their fair share of the throwaways.  I took this picture on June 12, 2012.
