The Brown Pelican is very common all along the coast of Florida. We see them often, sitting on pilings, or perched in trees on the islands in the intracoastal waterway, sometimes they are even floating in the water. I love watching them take that dive to catch fish but my favorite view is when there are several, flying in formation along the beaches and waterways.
