February 25, 2013-Like a Phoenix

Once on the brink of extinction, the California Brown Pelican has made a strong comeback. Here are some quick & cool facts about this remarkable seabird (from nps.gov):

• Breeding range is from the Channel Islands south to central Mexico.
• The only breeding colonies of California brown pelicans in the western United States are on West Anacapa and Santa Barbara Islands.
• The non-breeding range extends north to Vancouver, Canada.
• Brown pelicans build large nest structures on the ground, in trees, or on vegetation.
• The nesting season can extend from January through October.
• Brown pelicans normally lay three eggs and the adults share incubation duties.
• Brown pelicans can dive from 60 feet in the air.
• Brown pelicans can live up to 40 years old.
• A pelican's throat pouch can hold over 2 gallons of water.
