All about Pelicans
Pelicans are big, beautiful birds that are famous for their long beaks and throat pouches. There are eight different species of pelicans in the world, but the most common one is the American white pelican. These birds have white feathers with black wings and a yellow-orange beak. The male and female pelicans look the same.
One of the coolest things about pelicans is their beaks. They use their beaks to scoop up fish from the water, and they can hold up to three gallons of water in their throat pouches! They also use their beaks to cool off on hot days by flapping them like a fan. Pelicans are very social birds and can often be seen flying in a group, or “squadron,” above the water.
Pelicans are found all over the world, but they are most commonly found in warm, coastal areas. They are very good swimmers and divers and can stay underwater for up to three minutes!
Pelicans also like to sunbathe and will often spread their wings out to dry off after swimming. Our pelican coloring pages are a fun way to learn more about pelicans and their unique features. You can use any colors you want to create your own beautiful pelican picture!
