Pelican on the hunt

Near the Santa Barbara Pier, a pelican scans the water below for something to eat. With its large bill and head position, it resembles a pterodactyl.

Another pelican dives straight for the water. With a splash, the bird submerges and gulps the fish into a large sac on the lower half of its bill. It will then surface and expel water it also took in; then swallow the fish.
