Daily Painting, Birds, "Pelican Patrol" 6x18"

You may notice that these are not your everyday type of pelicans.  Most pelicans are brown and gray and kind of dull, unless they are a breeding male, their heads turn yellow during breeding season.

These beautiful birds, are larger, and a little on the rare side.  I found these in Sebastian, Florida where a large colony lives.


I think they are much more attractive with their brightly colored orange beaks and feet.  They seem to get along just fine with the brown guys.







My dear mother closed her eyes for the last time on April 27th.  This is the last post that I had scheduled ahead.  I find I need a little more time, so I will not be posting for another week or two.  I know you will understand.

How very interesting about the pelicans. Never did know there was a difference.

Sincere condolences for the loss of your mother. My mother has been gone quite a while, but there are times when I just feel like I need her here and still miss her after all this time.

Am so sorry about your mom. When we lose our parents, it leaves such a gap.

On your pelicans - you know I love your work, but I thought there only were white pelicans. Another lesson learnt.
