2019—Scrum

At the Orlando Wetlands Park in Orlando, Florida American White Pelicans form small flotillas and maneuver around the shallow waters in a kind of scrum, forcing small schools of fish together so that the pelicans can use their massive, flexible beaks to scoop up the fish and whatever else has accumulated beneath them. We witnessed this behavior over and over during our visit in February of this year.
