Brown Pelicans.

The brown pelican used to nest abundantly in the California but due to eggshell thinning from DDT and the collapse of sardine populations, they now mostly breed in Baja California, though small breeding colonies have appeared in the Channel Islands. The federal government removed the brown pelican from the Endangered Species Act, so it looks like we’ll get to watch those wonderful birds with their gular sacs gulping and a-fluttering for a very long time to come.
