|Pack of PelicansAmerican white pelicans
Colored Pencil on Fabriano
13.5" x 18"
We found this group of white pelicans lounging around Hagerman Wildlife Management Area in Idaho. It was a hot, sunny afternoon and the birds were resting and preening, striking up wonderful poses. The group included both immature and breeding age pelicans. The younger birds can be told by the dark feathers on their heads and the lack of a "knob" on the top of their bill.
To see some of the sketches I made of them, go to the 2006 sketchbook archive and look under July 2nd.
