American White Pelican

Length 125-165cm (49-64″). The American White Pelican is a very rare visitor (vagrant) to the Cayman Islands, and is known only from a handful of observations. White Pelicans fish from the water’s surface, thrusting their heads underwater. Not to be confused with our more common Brown Pelican, which fishes by diving from the sky into the sea.
