Guana River State Park, Florida -- The Brown pelican Pelecanus occidentalis is the smallest of eight species of pelican. Living on coasts from Washington and Virginia south to northern Chile and the mouth of the Amazon River, this bird is distinguished from the American White Pelican by its brown body and its habit of diving for fish from the air.
