Chris McDonald photographs American White Pelicans

Dr. Chris McDonald, professor of political science, captured American White Pelicans with his camera near campus Wednesday morning. The photos show how they “fish” for a meal. These pelicans sweep their bill through the water using the big sack of skin like a net then they drain all the water out by putting the tip down — then toss back the contents — which as you can see is quite a lot of fish!
