Walking the Malecon boardwalk in Puerto Vallarta, Carmela and I saw these amazing birds diving into the water, beak first, hunting for food. It was amazing to see how well they could tuck in their wings and plunge into the water with nary a splash.
This gives the birds the advantage of surprise against the target fish. Principle 21 – Rushing Through
The brown pelican is one of three pelican species in the Americas and one of only two species that feed by diving into water.
