Baby Birdorable: Brown Pelican

If you think our Birdorable birds are cute as adults, what about when they are babies? Below are some baby photos (shared via Flickr) of the Brown Pelican. Brown Pelicans are social birds and communal nesters (check out that first photo!). Usually three eggs are laid. Incubation duties are shared by both parents; incubation lasts up to 32 days.
