South Carolina Charleston – December 25, 2021- Pelicans

Here’s some photos From the promenade in Charleston, SC. The sun was bright and people were out strolling everywhere to enjoy the mild weather. Two pelicans were sitting in the water. This was my first time seeing pelicans on the waterway instead of on the wing. They have always amazed and fascinated me because they have survived form prehistoric times.

From the Moultrie, SC Post and Courier: “Like a flying dinosaur straight out of Jurassic Park, the Brown Pelican (Pelicanus occidentalis) has prehistoric antecedents going back 30 million years. One of the largest of our water birds, an adult male weighs around 8 pounds and has a wingspan that stretches 8-feet across.Apr 26, 2020.”

Photos 1 & 2 Are the same bird. The third one is the second bird of the pair.

Thanks for stopping by my kitchen.

Have a good week where ever you find yourself.
