American white pelicans are one of the largest birds you can see in North American with a wingspan measuring up to 9 feet. They migrate together in what is called a flock or pod to warmer areas during the winter months and feed on fish in shallow lakes, protected bays and estuaries. They are the perfect example of an Arizona "snowbird"... a term often reserved for "two-legged" humans wintering over in Arizona. In this photo the arch of the American White Pelican preening was a beautiful graceful sight to see at the Gilbert Riparian.
