Species Spotlight: Brown Pelican

There are only about seven or eight species of pelican in the world. The brown pelican, found on the West Coast from California south to Chile and on the East Coast from Maryland south to Venezuela, is wonderfully unique, with a large bill, pale neck and dark body. Its beak is about 10 inches in length, with a hooked tip and a huge pouch, and it has short legs and webbed toes.

Over 300 species of birds live in this area at least part of the year, from tiny penguin-like rhinoceros auklets offshore to golden eagles soaring over the peaks. To get  more information about birds and their habitats at the Olympic Peninsula, please visit the National Park Service's website.
