GSivitz-pelican

13.5” x 11″ watercolor on paper
Graceful on water and in the air, yet ungainly on land, the American white pelican summers in western and central

North America. When a flock of these birds feed together on a lake or river, it looks like a beautiful ballet.

Observation of the Tracy Aviary’s flock of pelicans in Salt Lake City, Utah were key to capturing the bird’s personality.
