A Brown Pelican hanging out at the Oceanside Pier.
I recently heard that you only find Brown Pelicans at the ocean and White Pelicans at lakes. Since we only have the two types in California, it’s easy to figure out which one it is based on what body of water you are looking at. So far, I’ve found that to be true. I can’t seem to find anything online about it. Please let me know if you’ve heard that tip too!
