I think this is called an “Elegant Tern.” But, all research indicates this bird doesn’t really come to Florida? Breeds and hangs out in California, Mexico, Baja Peninsula…?ย

COCOA BEACH, FLORIDA: A PELICAN CO-OP

At first, I was alarmed at the large congregation of pelicans on the water. I instantly thought they were plotting a 2019 takeover. After some research, it turns out that pelicans fish in cooperative groups. They either form straight, or U-shaped formations (both of which youโ€™ll see within this series) to flap their wings to gather fish in shallow water and then the pelicans take turns leaving the formations to dive in for fish food.
