Pelican Cormorant flotilla

American White Pelicans and cormorants hang out together on what we have come to call Pelican Island at Archbishop Joseph A Fiorenza Park in Houston.

This flotilla of birds of both species appeared to be following a shoal of fish, progressing quite speedily across the lake in formation.

Then maybe they were not keeping up, so the pelicans took off.
