Three beauties... no, I don't think so :) - Hey and almost no zoom here, I was very close!

American White Pelican has a long and flat bill, with a large throat sac, and in the breeding season vivid orange like the iris, the bare skin around the eye, and the feet. In the breeding season, there is a laterally flattened "horn" on the upper bill. This is shed off after the birds have mated and laid their eggs.

Biały Pelikan Amerykański ma długi i płaski dziób, z dużym workiem podgardla, w okresie lęgowym jaskrawo pomarańczowy. Pelikan ma gołą skórę wokół oczu i nóg. W sezonie lęgowym maja bocznie spłaszczony "róg" w górnej częsci dzióba. **Jest on zrzucany po okresie lęgowym i złozeniu jaj.
