I could not identify these pelicans. My friend Dave (an ecologist) said he first thought I’d discovered a new species (his suggested name: The Giant Brown Pelican! ;-)), until he realized that the brown bird is closer to the camera, which would make these a juvenile (brownish bird) and an adult (white bird) Great White Pelican (also known as the Eastern White Pelican).
