Avery Island Wildlife - pam-and-edmund-mcilhenny

Edmund and I took this photo of American White Pelicans several years ago, and it is the only time before or since that we have seen these birds on Avery Island. American White Pelicans eat fish, of course, and are known to cooperate while feeding by chasing fish to each other. We didn't enlarge the photo or really pay that much attention to it at the time, but when we saw it full screen on our computer, we noticed that the black Cormorants mingled quite happily with the visiting pelicans.
